MIAMI TOWNSHIP, CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A 47-year-old man died and his father was hospitalized after fire broke out in the basement of a home early Monday, fire officials said.

Michael Sloan was pronounced dead at Bethesda North Hospital, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

Sloan and his father were taken by ambulance to the hospital shortly after Miami Township fire crews responded just before 4:30 a.m. to the 6200 block of Hollow Wood Circle, fire officials said.

Sloan lived in the basement of his parents' house, fire officials said. It was not immediately clear if his death was due to the fire or cardiac arrest, they added.

The father's condition at the hospital was not immediately available. The mother remains on scene and is fine, they said.

AirCare was originally called to the fire scene, but was diverted to the hospital to pick up at least one patient and fly that person to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to Clermont County dispatchers.

Earlier this morning, Miami Township fire crews said in a tweet they were on scene of a house fire with a possible entrapment.

A neighbor called 911 and reported seeing flames coming from the home, according to dispatchers.

The house fire is out, crews said. A cause and damage estimate was not immediately available.

A FOX19 NOW crew at the scene observed fire crews providing what appeared to be medical aid to a dog on the front lawn.

An unknown number of animals were inside the home when the fire began, according to the fire department.
