DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Crews worked through winds and frigid temperatures battling several house fires on the same street in Dayton on Saturday.

According to dispatch, a call first came in at 10:12 a.m. for a report of a house on fire on the 200 block of Irwin Avenue in Dayton.

Dayton Fire Department District Chief Adam Landis said when the first company arrived, they saw one building engulfed in flames and spreading to the two neighboring homes. Landis said the company called a second alarm right away.

Mutual aid was provided by Kettering, WPAFB, Oakwood, and Beavercreek fire departments.

Our 2 NEWS crew was able to see smoke from I-75 and were on scene for several hours.

As firefighters worked to extinguish the fire, the wind spread the flames to two homes across the street. According to our crew on scene, occupants from those homes were evacuated by crews.

“The fire was in the bathroom, so then I got my wife and said, ‘come on, let’s go’ because there was a lot of smoke,” a man who lived in one of the homes told 2 NEWS.

AES was also on scene to shut power off to the homes, our 2 NEWS crew reports.

Landis said the original caller said people were trapped inside of the home and three homes were on fire when crews arrived.

One man told 2 NEWS he and his friend were nearby when the fire started. He saw a woman stuck in the second floor window, and jumped in to help.

“I got her down before it burst out,” Andrew Carpenter said. “Right after we got her down, it burst out that window right there, flames coming out of it.”

Landis said along with the wind, the cold temperatures caused the water they were using to extinguish the flames to turn to ice.

“You can only move so fast when things are slippery and icy,” Landis said. “So we have to do it in a controlled, safe manner, balancing it with the extremity of the fire.”

11 people are currently displaced from their homes and the American Red Cross is assisting.

Two people were also taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The fire chief said the original home that caught fire is a total loss and the others will have to be reviewed.

Landis said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
