1 dead after morning fire in Butler County, sheriff says

BUTLER CO., Ohio (FOX19) - One person died in a morning fire in St. Clair Township, according to Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.

Firefighters responded to the fire in the 1500 block of North B Street around 7 a.m. Thursday.

A man died in the fire; the sheriff tells FOX19 NOW.

A neighbor says she heard all the sirens coming down early Thursday.

“I just heard around 7:30-ish just a bunch of sirens, which that’s normal around here, there’s sirens and fire trucks and ambulances,” says Morgan Woodrey. “And then my three-year-old looked out the window, and she saw the fire trucks going down that way.”

Sheriff Jones says the man did not have electricity and had an extension cord running from his neighbor’s house to his.
