BALTIMORE (AP) — Three people have been taken to a hospital after a fire tore through four Baltimore row homes on the same block where a pride flag was burned.

Authorities did not immediately say whether the two fires were connected or whether they believe either constituted a hate crime.

But neighbor Dan Walker told The Baltimore Sun that the row house that suffered the most damage “was pretty well decorated with banners and flags” after a Pride event in the neighborhood last weekend.

City officials say responding firefighters found four houses engulfed in flames early Wednesday morning.

Three people were taken to a hospital in serious and critical condition.
