Firefighters pulled a juvenile from the house during the fire. The adult and another juvenile were able to make it out of the home.

A neighbor reported a house fire with someone trapped inside. Firefighters entered the home and were able to remove the person from the structure. All three were taken to the hospital. Two were released from the hospital after being treated for smoke inhalation..

The fire was extinguished before it could spread to any other property.
