MANCHESTER (KMOX) – A house fire in Manchester has sent four people to a hospital.

Firefighters were called to the scene at about 2:30 this morning. A West County Fire District spokesman says the flames were contained to the inside of the ranch-style home, but there was heavy smoke.

Smoke detectors are being credited with helping the family escape.

West County Fire District Spokesperson Sara Dayley tells us four adults suffered smoke inhalation… of them, an elderly woman, also suffered minor burns while getting out of the home in the 800 block of Posthorn. All are expected to recover.

The family’s dog didn’t make it out. The fire’s cause is now under investigation
