A home in northeast Rapid City suffered significant damage in a fire Wednesday morning.
The fire started around 11 a.m. at a home in the 3400 block of North Elk Vale Road. Three people — two adults and a child — were inside when the fire broke out, but managed to escape. One of the occupants was treated for smoke inhalation, according to a news release from the Rapid City Fire Department.
Crews responding to the scene found that heavy flames in an enclosed porch had spread to the interior of the home. The main fire was knocked down in about 10 minutes, and crews remained on the scene until around 1 p.m. mopping up hot spots.
The cause is under investigation, the release said.
The American Red Cross provided assistance, helping the occupants of the home with their immediate needs.
