One person was transported to Jamestown Regional Medical Center after an incident involving a meat smoker Wednesday night, according to Jamestown Fire Chief Jim Reuther.
Six units from the Jamestown Fire Department responded to a report of a garage fire at 611 3rd Ave. SE at about 7:30 p.m.
Reuther said 29 firefighters responded although the fire was extinguished by the homeowner when the units arrived. Units returned to the fire hall by 8 p.m.
The fire started with a meat smoker and spread to some nearby cardboard in the garage, Reuther said. Damage from the fire was minimal.
A resident of the home was transported by Jamestown Ambulance to JRMC for possible treatment of smoke inhalation.
