FAIRFIELD — A fire in a clothes dryer Tuesday afternoon sent a Gagnon Road resident to the hospital.

Firefighters from Fairfield, Oakland, Skowhegan and Waterville, along with Delta Ambulance, were dispatched to the house at 162 Gagnon Road following a report of a fire at about 4 p.m.

The house’s occupant suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to Fairfield Fire Chief Duane Bickford, who did not know the victim’s condition.

Damage to the house was limited to the room containing the dryer.
