One person died in a house fire at a residence off Ashland Terrace on Thursday afternoon.
A second person suffering from smoke inhalation was helped from the home at 1310 Highland Road.
The fire broke out shortly before 4 p.m.
It took 14 fire companies about an hour and a half to get the fire under control.
The Fire Department said, "Initial crews went into rescue mode because of reports of entrapment of residents by the dispatch.
There was one party that was saved by firefighters, and rushed to a local hospital to be treated for injuries sustained during the fire. Unfortunately, there was one fatality that could not be saved due to overwhelming conditions."
There were two firefighters taken to a local hospital due to injuries sustained on the scene. Both are in stable condition.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
