Firefighters responded to a house fire at about 4:10 p.m. Thursday in Taylor Township.

The fire was on the 700 block of Fowler Hollow Road. Alpha, Port Matilda, Mountain Top and Hope fire companies were dispatched to the scene.

Port Matilda Deputy Fire Chief Robert Pryor said the fire started in the bedroom. One person was in the home at the time.

Their immediate call enabled first responders to quickly knock down the fire, though the house sustained heavy smoke damage. Emergency personnel treated the person who was in the home, but no serious injuries were reported.

The fire marshal will investigate the cause of the blaze.
