ANNAPOLIS, Md. — According to Annapolis officials, an individual living in a makeshift structure received second and third-degree burns following a Saturday morning fire.

At about 7 a.m., someone called 911 and reported that there was a fire in the woods, near outbound Rowe Boulevard, but after the College Creek Bridge. When they arrived, Annapolis and U.S. Naval Academy Fire Department units found a makeshift structure that was fully immersed in flames.

Although both fire departments managed to get the fire under control in about 15 minutes, the individual living in the structure received second and third-degree burns. He was treated and transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center, where he is reported to be in stable condition. No fire department injuries have been reported.

The cause has not been determined and this incident is currently under investigation by Annapolis Fire Department Fire Investigation Bureau.
