2 injured in Harrisburg row home fire

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

An 11-month-old boy was hospitalized after a row home fire that displaced 10 other people and closed a section of North Second Street in Harrisburg during Friday's evening commute.

Fire Chief Brian Enterline said the child and a 28-year-old man were taken to Harrisburg Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, and the youngster was later transferred to Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Their injuries were not believed to be life threatening, Enterline said.

The fire started in 1927 North Second at around 4 p.m. and spread to the home next door, at 1929 North Second.

The cause of the fire, which damaged two other homes, was not immediately determined.

Richard Brink, the owner of 1929, told abc27 News that he and his wife were resting when he received a phone call alerting him to the fire. He said he then saw smoke and flames in his bathroom before he and his wife fled their home.

The 1900 block of North Second Street was closed to traffic for more than two hours.

The fire was under control, but firefighters were still on the scene as of 6:30 p.m.
