Fire crews in Coalhurst battling a house fire this morning (Dec 3).

The Coalhurst Fire Department saying on Twitter they were called out to a home on 8th Street in that town. The post was made just before 6:00 am. Photos posted to social media show the home completely engulfed in flames. 

Coalhurst Fire Chief Matt Conte telling our radio station they arrived on scene to find a garage fully involved. He says there were two people in the home at the time and both managed to get out, thanks to a neighbour who went in to notify them of the fire.

The two managed to get out and were taken to hospital to be looked at.

No word on the cause yet, however Conte says he's confident the blaze started in the garage area and spread to the home itself.
