The Fire Marshal's office says an electrical malfunction started a fire that wound up engulfing a home in east Springfield.
Assistant Fire Chief David Pennington tells KTTS News at the scene it didn't take long to find the house off Southern Hills and Ingram Mill.
"We had heavy fire on our arrival with quick knockdown by the crews. One female occupant escaped the fire prior to our arrival. She's being treated for smoke inhalation."
Pennington says the home is heavily damaged, but wouldn't go as far as to call it destroyed.
