A man was killed and an elderly woman suffered serious injuries in a fire in a single-family home Thursday. The two residents were trapped in the home at 26 Maryvale Rd. when the fire broke out at about 1 p.m. A delivery employee and a male neighbor were able to help an elderly woman escape from the home before firefighters arrived. She was taken to the hospital after suffering serious injuries, Fire Chief Michael Patterson said. When firefighters and police responded, they were told a man was still inside the home, he said. They entered the home to try to rescue the man, even though flames were coming out of the front window and heavy smoke was billowing out other windows. Firefighters were unable to locate him before they had to retreat for safety reasons, Patterson said.
