UPDATE: Man burned in Reading fire

Posted by Christi Reynard email

READING, OH (FOX19) - Firefighters are looking for the cause of a 2-alarm fire at 15 Elizabeth Street in Reading. 

The Reading Fire Department was first to respond and called the second alarm for help from neighboring fire departments around 4:15 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.

A man in his 50's was seriously burned on his torso and arms and was taken to the hospital. He was one of three people who got out of the century-old home.

"Just the age of the fire, the weather conditions, and it was well involved when we got here," said Kevin Kaiser, Reading Fire Chief. "So that presented some challenged, but at this point again, just being careful with the firefighters we have here, to protect the exposure and get the main body of the fire put out."
