One person has been taken to hospital with serious injuries following a house fire on Durham Place in the west end of St. John’s.  Firefighters arrived on the scene to find heavy smoke pouring from the house and located a 25-year-old victim inside the house near the front entrance. Supt. Don Byrne of the St. John’s Regional Fire Department said the victim had taken in a lot of smoke and was rushed to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. There was no indication as to the cause of the fire but the damage was concentrated in the kitchen area. The rear of the house suffered severe fire damage in the blaze.

The fire was reported at about 3:30 this afternoon by a person who was not at home at the time but had been called by someone in the home.
