Three people were injured Tuesday afternoon when a fire broke out in a farmhouse in Darlington in Beaver County, according to authorities.
Firefighters found two women on the front porch of the structure on Enon Road when they arrived at about 3:30 p.m., according to Chad Crawford, Darlington's assistant fire chief.
One woman was suffering from smoke inhalation and was taken by ambulance to Heritage Valley Health System in Brighton.
The second woman was flown by medical helicopter to UPMC Mercy, Uptown, with burns to her face and head.
Firefighters wearing protective breathing apparatus entered the fire- and smoke-filled home to rescue a man who was trapped inside. He was flown to Mercy for treatment of smoke inhalation.
The fire, which is believed to have started in a bedroom, was brought under control by 4:15 p.m., Crawford said. A cause is under investigation.
