MASON, OH (FOX19) -

An elderly man and his dog are believed to be the victims of a fatal Mason house fire early Thursday, according to officials with the Warren County Coroner's Office.

The man, identified as 77-year-old Clyde Isaacs, was found under a bed in a bedroom at a home in the 300 block of West Church Street just after 4 a.m., said Doyle Burke, the coroner's chief investigator.

Isaacs was the only one home when flames broke out, said Coroner Russell Uptegrove.

The fire started in the kitchen, Burke said.

Isaacs' body was burned, and he also suffered smoke inhalation.

His dog, Sport, is believed to have died along with him.

A woman at the scene of the fire tells FOX19 NOW said the man who died is her uncle.

She said he was in his 70s and lived in the home alone with his dog, Sport.

In fact, Sport rescued him once before from a residential fire, Jessica Black said.

A trailer her uncle lived in before he moved to West Church Street caught fire, she recalled.

Her uncle was asleep at the time. Sport barked and woke him so he could get out, she said.

This time, she lamented, her uncle and Sport were not so lucky.

The fire's cause and a damage estimate were not released.

The home appears to have sustained extensive damage.
