BERLIN, Md. - Multiple fire companies from Worcester County responded to a house fire on the 100-block of Branch Street in Berlin Thursday night just after 6 p.m. According to the Berlin Police Department, three people were taken to the hospital, including a Berlin Police officer.

Upon arrival, police officers said they learned two people were trapped within the home.  Officers say they saw the hand of a 6-year-old child through a window and realized the child was stuck inside.  Police officers forced their way into the house and rescued the child through the window.  Police say the child was turned over to emergency medical personnel of the Berlin Fire Company on the scene. One Berlin Police Officer was taken to Atlantic General Hospital and treated for injuries sustained during the rescue.

Officers also directed firefighters to the area where an adult female was last seen in the house.  Police say she was removed from the home by fire personnel.  Both victims were taken to Atlantic General Hospital.
