Evening fire emergency
Upon arrival of the crews, they entered via the front door and found a man on the floor. The crews were able to extinguish the flames and get the man out of the house before CPR was started. Sadly, the man later died while on the way to a healthcare facility according to battalion chief Bob Jones.
Jones believes that the man was living in the house by himself when the fire broke out in a bedroom near the back of the house near Hillside Mall. The root cause of the fire is still under investigation.
