House fire in Eugene on December 28, 2012

EUGENE, Ore. - A house fire sent a man to the hospital and put up a plume of smoke over northwest Eugene on Friday afternoon.

A witness at the scene told KVAL News an ambulance took a man from the scene.

Firefighters said the man suffered smoke inhalation but that he escaped as the fire spread through the home.

Flames gutted one-story home at the corner of Cedar Brook Drive and Barger Road.

The home is the only residence on a large patch of undeveloped land next to a subdivision.
