PARIS — The fire chief in Paris says three people suffering from smoke inhalation were taken to the hospital after a house fire in town.

Chief Brad Frost says the blaze on Durgin Road was reported at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

He tells WMTW-TV that five people were in home at the time.

Three were taken to Stephens Memorial Hospital in Norway, treated and released.

Frost said it took about an hour for firefighters from several departments to get the blaze under control.

The cause remains under investigation but Frost says the house was destroyed.
