BOONSBORO - One person was injured in a fire that damaged portions of a Boonsboro home Tuesday morning, according to Fairplay Fire Department Chief Leonard Heller Jr.
Firefighters went to 7622 Fairplay Road after homeowner Troy Lee Woods discovered the fire around 9:13 a.m.
Woods was taken to Washington County Hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation and a cut on his arm. He was admitted to the hospital and was listed in fair condition Tuesday night.
He was the only person home when the fire broke out, Heller said.
When firefighters arrived, 20-foot flames were shooting from the front picture window.
They attacked the fire by entering through the front and side doors and the basement, containing the blaze mainly to the living room and kitchen, which were already engulfed, firefighters said.
