WASHOUGAL, Wash. (AP) - Firefighters have rescued three dogs from a Washougal mobile home fire that left one person hospitalized for smoke inhalation.

Crews had responded Tuesday night to find flames and smoke coming from inside the mobile home and its attached covered porch.

Crews had been working to extinguish the flames, while paramedics treated a person suffering from smoke inhalation. The patient was taken to a hospital for further treatment. It is unclear if they had lived at the home.

The three dogs were found inside the burning home and have been returned to their owners.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but preliminary reports indicate it may have started in a barbecue the homeowner had been using on the porch.
