LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Lake Charles firefighters are investigating a house fire on Common and 6th Streets.

We're told two adults and a child were in the house at the time, but officials say they made it out unharmed.

A fireman was taken to the hospital to be examined for slight smoke inhalation, and he's expected to be fine.

Firefighters say the call came in around 5:45 a.m. and within minutes they were on the scene extinguishing the blaze.
