Crews Battle House Fire in Dayton
DAYTON -- Some residents in Dayton are fuming tonight now that two vacant homes have gone up in flames in just two days.
The fire broke out early this morning on Jersey Street, engulfing the home and spreading to the home next door.
Neighbors were forced out until the flames were extinguished.
A similar incident happened Friday morning when another vacant home caught fire.
Resident Terry Mathes says, "excuse me, but it pisses me off honestly because it's right next to my house, my home. This is where I live in my bed and lay my head. What makes you not think that it might be me next?"
Firefighters blame arson for both fires. So far, no arrests have been made.
DAYTON -- Crews battle a house fire in Dayton.
Firefighters were called out just after 3:30 Monday morning on North Jersey Street at Third Street.
A home there caught fire then the flames started spreading to the neighboring homes. One person had to be evacuated from one of those homes.
When crews arrived the flames were out of control, and the fire was starting to spread to the house next door. Two people were inside the house next door and they had to quickly escape.
The fire chief tells us the house is vacant so at this time the fire looks very suspicious.
Firefighters battled a blaze next door on Friday morning, which was also a vacant house. That fire started around the same time. Neighbors say they are afraid their homes may be next.
When crews got to the Monday morning fire they were able to put the fire out pretty quickly.
Firefighters did not go inside and said they hosed out the flames from the sidewalk and used a ladder truck.
Third Street was closed at the North Jersey Street intersection. Crews will stay out a while longer just to make sure the house is secure.
The District Fire Chief says the two vacant houses next to each other are on the list to be demolished soon.
