Fire kills older man in trailer

TAYLORS ISLAND - A team of Deputy State Fire Marshals is continuing their 
investigation to determine the origin and cause of a travel trailer fire, which 
killed an elderly man on Taylors Island early Wednesday morning. The 6:01 a.m. 
blaze caused an estimated $20,000 damage to the approximately ten (10) foot X 
thirty (30) foot home.

An elderly female resident sustained serious injuries in the blaze and was 
transported by Maryland State Police Aviation to the Baltimore Regional 8urn 
Center at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment. Her condition at 
this time is unknown.

Thirty (30) firefighters from Taylors Island, Church Creek, and Madison, and an 
EMS crew from Rescue Fire Co were able to bring the fire under control in 
fifteen (15) minutes. There were no firefighter injuries reported.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is being assisted by the Maryland State 
Police in the investigation. The identification of both the deceased man and 
the injured woman are being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The 
exact cause of death will be established by an examination performed by the 
Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.
