A man has been seriously burned in a house fire in Northeast Washington.

A neighbor, Guy Hill, said that he ran into the house because kids are usually playing there and he was afraid one might be inside.

But the fear that a child was trapped inside turned out to be not true, officials say. A 5-year-old child was evaluated as a precaution.

The fire was in the 300 block of 15th Street, in Northeast, and it spread to a second home.

Fire officials say about ten people have been displaced.

The fire victim is reportedly in stable condition.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
