A woman was critically hurt and 3 firefighters were taken to the hospital with minor injuries following a two-alarm fire in Springfield, Virginia. The Fairfax Fire & Rescue Department reports the fire started in the kitchen of a townhouse located on the 6800 block of Clowser Court.

The fire was reported just before 8:00 Saturday morning. Three adults and a child who lived in the home had escaped, but one woman suffered smoke inhalation and possible burns. She was flown to the Washington Hospital Center.

At about the eight-minute mark command reports a flashover occurs. A spokesman says that’s when the firefighters received their injuries.
