HALLTOWN, W.Va. - Three people were injured in a Tuesday morning fire at their home in Halltown, escaping from the burning house as fire trucks pulled up.
Kenneth Harder, 65, was flown from Jefferson Memorial Hospital to Fairfax Hospital. His condition was unavailable late Wednesday.
His son, Charles Harder, 39, and his wife, Agnes Harder, were listed in fair condition Tuesday at Jefferson Memorial Hospital, said spokeswoman Teresa McCabe.
All three suffered burns and smoke inhalation, Friendship Fire Chief Steve Hough said.
Fire companies were alerted around 6:46 a.m. by a call from the home off W.Va. 230, Hough said.
The cause of the fire is unknown, he said.
The fire is believed to have started in the living room and spread to the bedrooms in the single-story, wood frame home, Hough said.
