Around 0130 this morning, District 6 was dispatched to the area of Division St and Fourth St for a reported house fire with occupants still inside. Crews arrived to heavy fire conditions in the rear of the residence and spreading quickly. Crews begin to knock down the fire with hand lines and searching the residence. Due to deteriorating conditions crews were removed from the residence and fought the fire from the exterior. After the flames were extinguished one victim was located deceased inside the residence. Crews remained on scene for a few hours to knock down the hot spots. One firefighter was transported to an area hospital for smoke inhalation and was treated and released.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim.
