CAL FIRE SLO firefighters extinguished a fire Sunday afternoon inside a home in Nipomo that resulted in one person being transported to a hospital.

According to Cal Fire Battalion Chief Eric Shalhoob, crews responded to reports of a structure fire on the 200 block of West Price Street in Nipomo at about 2 p.m.

When first responders arrived, they saw a neighbor pulling one person out of the home and resuscitating the victim.

CAL FIRE SLO crews took over and transported the victim to a hospital. The person is currently in critical care, said Shalhoob.

Shalhoob says two occupants were inside the home at the time of the fire, but there are no known injuries to anyone else.
