One person went to the hospital after a morning fire in Moline. Firefighters were called to a wood frame, single family home in the 1,000 block of 40th street around 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014.

Damage couldn't been seen from the outside, but fire officials says there is heavy smoke and water damage inside. Officials say cooking oil started the fire in the kitchen. Everyone got out of the home, but one of the residents was taken to the hospital to be checked out. The fire was extinguished within about five minutes.

Captain Jeff Snyder of the Moline Fire Department said all the snow on the ground did present some challenges to their job.

"They were able to see the top of the hydrant and just had to do a little digging, but getting here is a bigger problem because even though the plows have been through, side streets like this one are still a little rough," said Snyder. He went on to say public works crews have done a good job with their limited resources.

The Quad Cities chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family with emergency needs, since the house is currently uninhabitable.
