Two people were hospitalized Sunday afternoon with life-threatening injuries after firefighters rescued them from a Northeast D.C. house fire.

Firefighters pulled a 50-year-old man and a 70-year-old woman from the second floor of a two-story single family home, D.C. fire department spokesman Lon Walls said. The fire was reported around 1:15 p.m. at 104 50th Street.

First responders performed CPR on the woman, who was unconscious when she was rescued from the home, Mr. Walls said. Both victims’ injuries were described as life-threatening, through information about their nature and extent was not available.

Photos taken by firefighters at the scene show flames roaring from second-floor windows.

The cause of the fire was being investigated and damage estimates were not immediately known.
