Early this morning Vancouver Firefighters responded to the report of a house fire at 12100 NE 79th Street. The call, which came in at approximately 4am, had reports of a fully involved house fire with possible occupants still inside. Units arrived to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the garage and front of the house. Crews immediately began applying water from the outside and quickly made their way inside the home, continuing to extinguish the fire and search for victims. It took 20 firefighters 20 minutes to get the fire under control. One patient was transported from the scene to a local area hospital for smoke inhalation injuries. There were no other injuries.
