DAYTON, KY (FOX19) - Two people were taken to the hospital with burns following an early morning house fire Friday.

It happened in the 500 block of 3rd Avenue in Dayton around 5:15 a.m.

Two people were taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to Bellevue-Dayton Fire officials.

Both are listed in serious condition, according to Captain Chris Adkins.

One of the victims was the homeowner, who was pulled from the house by a neighbor.

"He kind of kicked in the door, and just went in and grabbed the guy and pulled him to safety," said neighbor Samantha Jarboe.

Scott Campbell lives next door to the house that caught fire.

He says he helped pull the second man out of the burning house.

"Seeing that there was another person inside three of us went in there and got him out, dragged him out," said Campbell

It took crews about 10 minutes to put out the flames.

"It was pretty bad," said Jarboe.

An investigative team was at the scene working to determine the cause.
