A blaze in Pocomoke City is reported to have left one dead and another injured.

The Saturday fire began at around 5 a.m .with firefighters from the Pocomoke Volunteer Fire Company finding a two-and half story single family home ablaze.  

The Worcester County Fire Marshall’s office says that in the initial search of the first floor firefighters found one victim who was sent onto a burn center in Baltimore.

A later search of the house discovered the body of the second victim.

WBOC reports that names of the two have been withheld until the families can be notified.

It took around 90 minutes to put out the fire.
