No one injured in Monday house fire
One woman treated for smoke inhalation
Nobody was hurt Monday morning after a fire broke out at a Fort Dodge apartment building at 530 S. 12th St.
The fire was reported at 10:12 a.m.
Fort Dodge Fire Chief Steve Hergenreter said firefighters were told as they were en route that somebody may have been inside the building.
“We knocked the fire down, did a search and he was not in there, thankfully,” Hergenreter said, adding that another apartment resident was able to get ahold of the man, who was never inside the building.
Once arriving on scene, firefighters encountered heavy smoke coming out of the second-floor doors and windows.
“We were able to get a hand line up in there and extinguish the fire,” Hergenreter said. “There’s significant fire damage, heat damage on the second floor, smoke damage to the whole second, third floor.”
