Fire officials say two people went to the hospital to be checked out after breathing in smoke from a house fire Thursday night.

The fire happened just before midnight at a home on U Street, near 39th Street.

The Fire Department says the flames started on the main level of the home and traveled through a concealed wall space.

It took eight minutes to bring the fire under control.

Firefighters say everyone in the home made it out OK, but two people went to the hospital to be checked out after breathing in smoke.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
