One person is in hospital following a fire Wednesday in a home in the West End.

The blaze broke out at around 3:30 yesterday afternoon in a two-storey home in the 500 block of Langside Street.

Heavy smoke was pouring out of the home when firefighters arrived. Crews were able to fight the fire from inside the home, declaring it under control an hour later.

All occupants of the home self-evacuated before crews arrived. One person was assessed by paramedics and transported to hospital in unstable condition. No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
