DAYTON, KY (FOX19) - Five frozen fire hydrants hampered efforts to fight a large fire in Dayton, Ky. Wednesday morning.

The fire sent one man to the hospital with smoke inhalation and injured a firefighter.

Crews say they were in the process of winterizing the fire hydrants.

Flames broke out just after 9 a.m. in a home in the 800 block of Walnut Street. The fire spread to a second home, and a third home also suffered exterior damage.

Part of the roof collapsed in one of the homes and fell on a firefighter, but he was not seriously hurt. A man was taken to the hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and two children were also checked out for smoke inhalation, but not taken to the hospital.

The homeowner of the second home that caught fire said the house had been in his family for five generations. A dog named Petie was rescued by firefighters from that home that caught fire, but a pet snake died.

Crews from Fort Thomas, Southgate and Bellevue were all called in for assistance. Smoke from the fire could be seen for miles.
