Five treated for smoke inhalation following southeast Ann Arbor house fire

Five people, including three children, were treated for smoke inhalation following a fire Saturday afternoon.

The Ann Arbor Fire Department responded to the fire at 2175 Hemlock Drive in Ann Arbor to find a mattress on fire in the front yard and a fire in the bedroom.

Battalion Chief Robert Vogel said the children alerted the mother that the mattress was burning, and she tried to drag it from the house. Two neighbors then came to help her, getting it to the lawn as the fire gained intensity.

Vogel said the damage is estimated to be $7,500, including moderate damage to the bedroom and heavy smoke damage throughout the house.

“There was a lot of smoke in the house,” he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. None of the people treated at the scene required hospitalization, Vogel said.
