Montgomery firefighters aid construction worker, 2 others
Construction work has its dangers, and sometimes not even a church, and a prominent one, too, can provide sanctuary, as a worker learned in Chevy Chase on Saturday.
Montgomery County fire and rescue personnel rescued the injured worker from the roof of All Saints Church on Chevy Chase Circle, authorities said. The man’s injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
In another incident involving injury, two people were taken to a hospital after a fire in a house.
The kitchen fire broke out about 7 a.m. in the 10300 block of Logan Drive in Potomac.
The blaze forced two occupants upstairs and firefighters rescued them from the second floor, according to Pete Piringer, a fire department spokesman.
The pair were taken to a hospital with injuries not thought to be life-threatening.
Piringer described the cause of the fire as electrical. He said the fire caused about $150,000 in damage.
