The Manhattan Fire Department was working Thursday to determine the cause of a fire that sent one person to a hospital.
About 4:20 p.m., fire crews responded to a fire at 411 S. 16th St., according to a news release from Deputy Chief Ryan Almes.
Upon arrival, firefighters found a two-family dwelling with smoke showing from the back.
One person was taken to Via Christi Hospital for smoke inhalation.
Crews were able to extinguish the fire within five minutes of arriving on the scene, Almes said.
Almes said the first floor of the home was occupied at the time of the fire and the basement apartment was vacant.
Structural damage was estimated at $5,000 and content loss at $500.
