Fire blazes through Dayton home

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton fire engines arrived to large flames at the 16 hundred block of Tuttle Avenue.

No one was inside the home at the time of the fire, but two pets were inside.

Unfortunately both dogs did not make it through.

Officials say the heavy smoke and toxins released most likely caused their death.

Preliminary inspection also show that there’s been extensive fire damage inside the one-story building.

“Preliminary investigation, we believe that we had a homeowner that.. the occupant that placed a combustible product up on the stove and inadvertently the burner was left on,” said Dayton Fire District Chief Joe Meyer.

Estimated damage to the home is at least $35,000.

The Red Cross was on the scene to assist this family.
