An interior attack was started and the blaze was brought under control in about 20 minutes.
Fortunately, the lone occupant was able to escape the fire safely before being evaluated by E-M-S.
Assisting at the scene were fire personnel from the Gravois, Mid-County and Versailles districts along with Lake West E-M-S and the Sunrise Beach and Laurie police departments.
No cause was released for the blaze which is being investigated by the Missouri Fire Marshals office.
