UPDATE: Man Who Died in House Fire Identified
DAYTON -- A Dayton man passed away in the hospital after firefighters rescued him from a burning home.
Dayton fire officials say Robert E. Clement, 57, was found just inside the door, as if he was trying to escape from the 2635 Kennedy Avenue home.
Clement was already suffering from a couple different health conditions.
"The patient was on oxygen," said Dayton Fire Department district chief Cheryl Clark.
"He's been sick and limping around," said neighbor Rose Barnard.
Clement's basement caught fire around 8:00 a.m. Thursday. Originally firefighters went to the nearest fire hydrant but it was frozen.
"Crews were hampered a little bit," said Clark. "With frozen hydrants, what we ended up doing is dumping one engine tank into another engine tank. We didn't get as full supply as we normally do from a hydrant."
Firefighters tell us they did have enough water from their two engine trucks to put out the fire, but we still wanted to know how a fire hydrant gets frozen?
"The fire-department does an annual maintenance on all fire hydrants in their areas," said operations administrator of Dayton Water Distribution Bureau David Shade.
They do it every fall, making sure they are in working order and pumping out excess water, so the winter weather won't freeze it. Still it happens several times a year.
"There's a couple of issues," Shade said. "One, if someone does operate the hydrant after we've been there and we don't know about it. The only other possibility is if the hydrant has a leak."
Dayton Water Distribution Bureau will go out Friday to see if there was a leak in the hydrant.
When the hydrant does freeze, the water department is able to heat up the metal to thaw out the frozen water.
Firefighters struggled with this fire because of the cold. Extra firefighters were called in to switch out crews so they weren't exposed to the extreme cold any longer than necessary. The fire is under investigation.
Firefighters Battle Frozen Hydrants at House Fire; Man Hospitalized
DAYTON -- A man has been hospitalized in serious condition after firefighters rescued him from a burning home.
Dayton fire officials say the man, who used an oxygen tank, was found just inside the door, as if he was trying to escape from the 2635 Kennedy Avenue home.
Firefighters struggled with this fire because of the cold. Two hydrants were frozen, resulting in a limited water supply. Also, extra firefighters were called in to switch out crews so they weren't exposed to the extreme cold any longer than necessary.
Firefighters are investigating the cause of the fire.
