An apartment complex fire in Milford Mill, Maryland early Monday morning tragically took the life of a 6-month-old boy, Malik Michael Hasan, who was the only fatality:
Fire Department spokeswoman Elise Armacost said the two-alarm fire was reported at 1:35 a.m. Monday.
Armacost said the fire appeared to begin on the third floor of a three-story garden apartment at the St. Charles at Olde Court apartment complex. The fire started in the apartment in which the infant was later found.
Residents said they awoke to hearing banging on doors and people saying everyone should get outside.
“It spread, like, in no time. In five minutes, it was spreading,” resident Vera Greene said of the fire.
There was no word on where Malik’s parents were at the time, or what circumstances prevented them from getting him out.
