The fire was reported around noon Wednesday in South Sioux City. Fire officials say embers in a grill used the night before rekindled and started a fire on a deck. The flames spread to the home.
Fire officials say a man who’d been in the house basement when the fire erupted was taken to a hospital for treatment. He’d been cut when he broke a window while trying to escape.
A firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion.
