Jennifer Baker reports:
Fire roared through a Mason home earlier today, injuring a resident and causing $200,000 in damage, city officials said.
Flames broke out just before 5 a.m. in the garage at 4792 Carriage Dr., said Jennifer Trepal, a city spokeswoman.
When Mason firefighters arrived, the blaze already was shooting out the garage windows. They contained the fire to the garage and a room above it, but both sustained heavy damage. So did an adjacent kitchen.
The remainder of the house has smoke and heat damage.
One family member suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The American Red Cross is helping that person find temporary shelter and clothing.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Several neighboring fire agencies responded to assist Mason including Deerfield Township, Loveland-Symmes and Sycamore Township.
