A man and wife are in the hospital following a house fire in Oxon Hill on Saturday morning.

Around 5:30a.m., firefighters got a call for someone trapped inside a burning home in the 5100 block of Boulder Drive and found heavy smoke upon arrival.

A man about 50-years-old was rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition.

His wife was also hospitalized with smoke inhalation and is said to be in fair condition.
