House fire sends one person to hospital

One woman is recovering from smoke inhalation after a fire on the city's north side. It took place at 620 Harold Street at around 1:30 Thursday afternoon. District Chief David Long says it appears damage is confined to the upper floor of the 1 and a half story home.  He says when they arrived smoke was coming out of two upstairs windows.  Crews went upstairs and extinguished the blaze.  One witness says a man was sleeping but woke up in time to escape. There is no cause to report.
