One woman was seriously hurt in a house fire early Thursday morning. 

Firefighters found smoke at the front door and a small fire in a bedroom of a home around 1:07 a.m. One resident escaped, and told firefighters someone was trapped inside.

Firefighters found the woman in a bathroom shortly after the fire was under control. She was transported by EMS in critical condition. The person who escaped the home was not hurt.

Investigators have not determined the cause of the fire. Damage was estimated between $20,000-$30,000.
