LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office is investigating an early morning fire in west Lubbock.

Firefighters responded to a home near 31st and Belmont just after 2 a.m. Tuesday morning.

It took crews about 20 minutes to put out the flames.

Officials say EMS transported a 47-year-old male to UMC where he was treated for smoke inhalation.
