Fatal fire in Baltimore leaves two occupants dead.

Baltimore City Fire are on the scene of a fire that occurred early Saturday morning.

Officials have confirmed there were two fatalities in the fire that occurred around 5:00 a.m. in the 1200 block of Greenmount Avenue.

 These individuals have been identified as two teenagers between the ages of 16-19.

Police say a 20-year-old woman jumped from the top story of the row home, where she sustained serious injuries.

 Police have confirmed that there were a total of eight occupants in the row home at the time of the fire.

Four females and two males ranging in age from 4-38 years are being treated at an area hospital, police say.

 Police have determined this incident was deliberately set and are calling it arson.

Officers think this incident may be connected with a non-fatal shooting that occurred in the same area earlier this week, but are still working to establish a connection.

This incident is still under investigation.
