Firefighters respond to double overdose while battling house fire

Authorities use Narcan to revive two people near a house fire on Dow St. in Dayton.

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Firefighters on the scene of a house fire in Dayton had to pull double duty after two people overdosed on drugs.

Crews were at a vacant house fire in the 800 block of  Dow Street just before midnight on Monday.

While firefighters were working to put out the fire, a call came from just down the street about a person down.

Authorities went to that scene and found a man and a woman overdosing in a vehicle.

Crews used eight doses of Narcan on the man and three on the woman to revive them.

Both were taken to the hospital, where their conditions are unknown. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
