Two people inside a house at 1590 Glassy Pond Drive were hospitalized after a Thursday morning fire. A neighbor who tried to help also was taken to a hospital. Neighbors were able to help rescue a woman, who was in a wheelchair, but couldn’t get to a man on the second floor.
The man was inside the burning home for “quite a while” before firefighters were able to reach him. He suffered life-threatening injuries. A neighbor trying to get to the second floor to help the man was hospitalized for smoke inhalation. The fire was contained to the second floor and the cause has not yet been determined.
