Two Adults Escape House Fire

CKFR responded to a 2nd Alarm residential structure fire earlier today. Two adults were home when they noticed heavy smoke coming from a bedroom. While one gathered their pets and got outside to call 911, the other attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher. He was later transported for smoke inhalation. The fire quickly spread through the second floor and the attic. Crews had it extinguished approximately 30 minutes after arriving on scene. The home is uninhabitable. The County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause and the Red Cross was called to assist the family.
