Firefighters responded to a single family detached home on the 2700 block of 12th Street shortly after 10 p.m., where a fire was blazing through the roof.

Firefighters evacuated the home and battled the blaze from the outside for more than an hour.

A firefighter was evaluated on the scene and someone inside the home was also being treated by medics on the scene. That person is among the four people transported to the hospital.

The fire has blocked 12th Street NE between Franklin Street NE and Rhode Island Avenue NE.

Fire officials did not name a cause of the fire.
