Ohio House Fire, Person Trapped

Dash cam video from the incident commander

David Decker – On May 13, 2019 at 0428 hours Newark Fire Department was requested to assist on a house fire outside of the city limits. This area is a rural area that is served by a combination of paid and volunteer departments, and located over 11 miles from Newark Station-1.

While responding the dispatcher provided updates of a victim trapped inside the home, as well as receiving additional calls. Newark responded with one engine, two medics, and a chief officer. Upon arrival a neighbor confirmed that an adult male went back inside the home to search for a dog and he had not come back out of the house.

A crew entered the structure through a bedroom window and was able to locate the victim who was deceased. The search crew encountered spongy floors and was withdrawn from the building due to deteriorating conditions, and insufficient resources to safely support an interior attack.

I apologize for the choppy and poor radio reception. We operate on an 700 mhz trunked radio system that has a somewhat poor signal in this location.
