Two people were treated for smoke inhalation after a house fire in Holly Hill late Friday night. Holly Hill Fire Chief James Bland says one person was treated at the scene by EVAC ambulance, and another person was transported to Halifax Medical Center. The injuries were not considered life-threatening. The house at 724 State Avenue, a wood frame structure built in 1925, was a total loss estimated at $40,000. Firefighters were called to the scene shortly before 11 Friday night, and were on the scene in four minutes. Chief Bland says the arriving crews found “…heavy fire coming from all sides of the structure.” The four people in the home and a dog were able to escape the building. Firefighters from the Daytona Beach Fire Department also assisted in fighting the blaze. Chief Bland says the State Fire Marshall’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire, but it is not considered at this time to be of a suspicious nature. The residents are being assisted by the American Red Cross.
