Firefighters responded to the home in the 1600 block of N. 7th Street shortly before 3 a.m.

Three of those firefighters were injured and taken to a local hospital.

The fire department said that there were no working smoke detectors and that the cause of the fire is under investigation.

The estimated total dollar loss is $40,000.
