37- year old woman and a six year old girl are dead and three firefighters were hurt during an early morning row house fire along East Madison Street in Lancaster. The fire started just after 4:00 a.m. this morning and trapped the two people inside a second floor bedroom. Lt. Andre Kelly and firefighter Tom Bender had trouble getting water from a nearby fire hydrant but went inside the home anyway to try to rescue the two. They hit a flash- over and were then trapped themselves. They had to be rescued.
