REISTERSTOWN, Md. — A Tuesday morning fire left a woman without a home and two firefighters injured.

It happened at a senior living apartment at 302 Contata Court in Reisterstown.

Crews arrived to find flames coming from a fourth floor apartment.

Luckily a woman living in the unit got out safely. One firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and another a hand injury.

Fire officials say the cause appears to be electrical, originating from the apartment balcony.

The damage has left the apartment inhabitable for now.
