One person was taken to a hospital Saturday after fire damaged a house in a southeast Vancouver neighborhood overlooking the Columbia River, according to the Vancouver Fire Department.

Crews were dispatched at 7:32 p.m. to the 14600 block of Southeast 36th Circle and arrived to find the house on fire, according to a statement from the department.

The firefighting effort was hindered by an out-of-service fire hydrant nearest the house and a floor in the home’s entryway that gave way under firefighters. No firefighters were injured, the statement said.

One person was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center for undisclosed reasons.

It took 25 firefighters nearly 70 minutes to get the fire under control, according to the statement. It said crews from the Vancouver Fire Department were assisted by one engine from the Camas Washougal Fire Department.

A fire marshal was called in to investigate the cause of the fire, the statement said.
