DAYTON (WDTN) — A firefighter was injured while battling a vacant house fire in Dayton early on Tuesday morning.
Crews responded to a call in the 300 block of Troy Street, after a neighbor reportedly called in the fire around 3 a.m. on Tuesday.
When firefighters arrived, they found a vacant house fully engulfed in flames.
Crews worked quickly to knock down the fire from the outside, before entering the house.
That’s when a firefighter fell into a construction hole, injuring his shoulder. The firefighter was taken to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment.
District Chief David Wright from the Dayton Fire Department says the fire is being investigated as suspicious.
Investigators will be on the scene later on Tuesday morning after the fire is put out.
