HAGERSTOWN - A Hagerstown man remained in critical condition Saturday after being burned in a Friday night fire in St. Charles Apartments.
Authorities identified the man as George Adams.
The cause of the fire in Adam's fourth-floor apartment room is under investigation, Hagerstown Assistant Fire Marshall Wayne D. Smith said. The fire appears to have originated near a couch in Adam's apartment, Smith said.
Smith has not yet interviewed Adams, whose age was unavailable.
Firefighters pulled Adams out of the building and placed him in an ambulance to Washington County Hospital. Later Friday night he was flown to the burn unit at Washington Hospital Center where he remained Saturday.
