Update, 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 5

One woman, who was on the porch when emergency personnel arrived, was taken to Melrose-Wakefield Hospital for burns and smoke inhalation, according to Malden Deputy Fire Chief Leonard Dunn III.

The person who was believed to be trapped was in a second-floor bathroom and was unaware of the fire until firefighters arrived, as the home's smoke detectors had been taken down some time ago. This person was not injured.

The Malden Fire Department reminded residents to check and make sure that they have operating smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, to test them every month and to change the batteries in them twice a year.
