      (WJLA) - Four people, including two firefighters, were hospitalized early Sunday following a house fire in Glen Burnie.

      Firefighters responded to the 7300 block of Dotson Lane at about 1:30 a.m. and found smoke and flames coming from the basement and first floor of a two-story home.{}

      Three of the home's occupants were alerted by smoke detectors and had evacuated before firefighters arrived.

      A 23-year-old woman suffered smoke inhalation and was transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma with serious but non life-threatening injuries.

      A second victim, a 66-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries when she jumped from a second story window. She was transported to Baltimore-Washington Medical Center.

      Two firefighters were also transported to BWMC for evaluation.

      It took firefighters about an hour to control the blaze, which caused about $65,000 in damages and was ruled accidental.
