A neighbor reported smoke about 11:18 a.m. and when the fire department arrived, they saw light smoke and flames at the back door, Chief Doug Fosburg said.

The renter was finally located elsewhere, later in the day, he said. One firefighter was transported for minor smoke inhalation, he said. Fosburg said the victim was himself, and it happened when the wind changed the direction of the smoke as he was beginning incident command.
