Baltimore fire officials are busy trying to figure out what caused three fires in the city Tuesday.

Crews were called to two separate fires only minutes apart.

A row home in the 200 block of Mount Holly Street caught fire shortly after 11 a.m.

The corner home was occupied, and one firefighter suffered a minor burn injury and was taken to the hospital.

Then on the other side of town, a vacant house fire in east Baltimore on North Milton Avenue caught fire. Crews were able to control the fire in about 50 minutes.

No one was hurt.

Earlier Tuesday morning, a vacant house fire in downtown Baltimore also caught fire.
