Firefighters knock out house fire in Newport

A small house fire broke out in Newport Beach late Thursday night but firefighters extinguished it quickly, authorities said.

Firefighters responded to a call on Bridgeport Road at about 11:46 p.m. Thursday and put the flames out within five minutes, Newport Beach Fire Department spokeswoman Jennifer Schulz said in a news release.

One person was transported to the hospital and another was treated at the scene — both for injuries not sustained during the fire, the release said.

Damage from the fire was estimated at about $10,000 and confined to one part of the house. The cause remains under investigation.
