Last night, just after 11:00 p.m., Toledo firefighters responded to 716 Green Street on the report of an house fire. Engine 9 reported on scene finding heavy smoke conditions coming from the residence.
Engine 9 made an aggressive interior attack on the fire while other crews were simultaneously searching for a reported victim still inside the burning structure.
In just minutes an elderly female was located by members of Rescue Squad 7 and rescued from the structure. She was brought outside to other Toledo firefighters who immediately began life saving medical care while they transported her to the hospital.
Currently, the fire remains under investigation.
Good job to Engines 9, 5, 7, 16, 21, Truck 5, Life Squad 1, Battalion Chief 1 and Safety Officer 134.
