Firefighters were able to contain a house fire Thursday that may have started in the back bedroom of a single-story Salinas home.

Three people inside the home at the time of the fire were able to exit, but two were exposed to smoke. Salinas Fire Department Battalion Chief Brett Loomis said one was transported to the hospital and the other was treated and released at the scene.
