Flames and smoke were streaming into the sky when firefighters arrived on the scene, between Van Lear and Garfield Streets, around 6:45 a.m.
The first crews on the scene made their way into blazing home to rescue the occupant. He was taken to a local hospital with burns on his body.
While they attacked the blaze, a dog poked his head through a second story window and appeared ready to jump. Firefighters carried a ladder to the window and carried the dog down.
They also pulled two other dogs from the fire.
Firefighters are still working to determine the cause of the blaze, but they say the amount of stuff in the man's home made it difficult to get to him.
The man's home was torn down Tuesday afternoon because it was considered a danger.
He also reportedly owns the home next door which was damaged by the fire. That house was condemned by the city because of its condition.
Dayton-based PSA Airlines announced it is hiring 1,000 more employees as part an American Airlines announcement that it will be purchasing new regional jets.
When police and firefighters arrived, they said one of the victims, a grandfather living at the residence, was trying to go back inside the burning home.
