Firefighters were dispatched to a house fire in Price on Monday morning.
According to Frank Peczuh, assistant chief for the Price City Fire Department, said the home, located at 267 North 100 West, caught fire around 8 a.m. Crews were able to extinguish the flames quickly after arriving. Peczuh explained that firefighters were able to limit the fire damage to a small area, but a large amount of smoke damage did occur.
“We are very fortunate that it didn’t spread,” Peczuh said.
One resident, who was alert and conscious, was transported for medical observation for smoke inhalation.
The exact cause of the fire has not been confirmed. Price City Fire Chief Paul Bedont is out of town for training and will confirm the cause upon his return.
