One woman was hospitalized for injuries after she jumped off a front porch during a fire that destroyed a home in the City of Monroe early Tuesday morning.

Monroe firefighters were called to the 2 ½ - story, wood-framed home at 229 Harrison St. between W. Second and W. Third Sts. just after midnight Monday.

The middle-aged woman was taken to ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital for treatment by Monroe Community Ambulance, said Monroe fire Chief Robert Wight. The extent of her injuries were not known, he said. She was one of two people inside the house at the time of the fire.

Initial reports on social media said the woman jumped out of a window, but those were not accurate, Wight said.

The entire front of the house was engulfed when firefighters arrived, the chief said.

“The bulk of it got knocked down pretty quick,” he said Tuesday. “There were a lot of combustible materials that caught fire and made it a little difficult to put out. There were also some hot spots.”

The home was a total loss, Wight said. The American Red Cross is assisting the displaced family.

Lt. Scott Smiley, one of two inspectors on the force, dug through the rubble Tuesday morning to find clues to what started the blaze.

Firefighters were on the scene until about 5 a.m. Tuesday. Monroe Township volunteer firefighters assisted along with Monroe Police, MCA and the Red Cross.
