Woman taken to hospital, home a complete loss following fire
RIGBY — A woman was taken to the hospital and a home is considered a complete loss after a fire broke out early Wednesday morning.
Central Fire District’s Rigby and Ririe stations, along with Lewisville and Menan fire crews, were called to the 3800 block of 38 North in Rigby around 12:30 a.m. The house was fully engulfed in flames and crews worked to protect the fire from spreading to nearby homes, according to a news release.
The homeowner was taken to the hospital via Idaho Falls ambulance where she was treated and released for smoke inhalation. Officials say smoke detectors woke up some occupants inside the house. Nobody was seriously injured.
Crews were able to get the fire out by 4:15 a.m. Officials say an electrical issue likely caused the fire but the State Deputy Fire Marshal will investigate.
The estimated loss from the fire is $600,000, according to Central Fire District.
