Smoke inhalation injuries reported after Trumbull house fire

The Trumbull Volunteer Fire Department responded to a house fire Thursday night.

The call went out at 8:30 p.m. for a fire at 167 Main Street in Trumbull.

According to a release from the Clay County Emergency Manager, firefighters arrived and found the home was full of smoke and three adult males were needing medical treatment. The two adult male occupants of the home were suffering from minor smoke inhalation. An adult family member who lives near by had ran to the house to help and received minor burns and possible abrasions.

The occupants had used fire extinguishers to contain the fire to a small area of the home. Trumbull Fire members aided the victims and ventilated the smoke from inside the home. The three men went to Mary Lanning Hospital for evaluation and treatment.

There were dogs that had been in the home. TLC Vets came to the scene to evaluate the animals.

The American Red Cross was put in contact with the victims to provide assistance as the home will need some repairs before it can be safely occupied. Working smoke detectors were found when TVFD arrived.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
