08-05-14 Duplex Fire Sends Man to Hospital

While some firefighters worked to get the blaze under control, two firefighters made their way inside to look for victims. Captain Ashley May and Lt. Alex Cole found a male victim at the rear of the B side of the duplex. The two firefighters carried the victim out of the apartment, where firefighters and EMS personnel administered oxygen. (See attached video clip with Captain May, who describes how he and Lt. Cole found the victim in the duplex.)

Firefighters said the victim was unresponsive. The victim was then transported by Hamilton County EMS to Erlanger Medical Center. At the time of this release, the man's condition was still being assessed

Battalion Chief Charles Patton said the fire was brought under control in about 30 minutes. The fire displaced at least one adult who lived in the other side of the duplex. Volunteers with the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee were called in to provide assistance to the victims.

One of two pet dogs perished in the blaze. The cause of the fire is under investigation. s2m2 police also provided assistance on the scene.
