One person injured in Battle Ground house fire

By , Columbian staff reporter

A family of five was displaced and one person was burned in a Battle Ground house fire Monday morning.

Clark County Fire District 3 responded at 11:10 a.m. to 2101 N.W. 16th Circle for reports of black smoke coming out of the back of the house, according to Battalion Chief Sean Smith. Crews arrived to the single-story house on fire.

Everyone was out of the house when firefighters arrived, but Smith said one person was taken to an area hospital to be treated for minor burns and smoke inhalation. The other family members and their pets escaped safely.

In about 10 minutes, firefighters had the blaze under control, Smith said. The fire damage was contained to the back side of the house where the fire started, but there was smoke damage throughout the interior. Crews kept the fire from spreading to any nearby structures.

Fire District 3 Fire Marshal Chris Drone is investigating the cause.

Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue assisted, and Clark Public Utilities and the Battle Ground Police Department also responded.
