CINCINNATI — The quick response of Cincinnati firefighters saved the life of one Bond Hill resident shortly after midnight Saturday.
Crews went to 4906 Paddock Road after a person called Cincinnati dispatchers to report a fire in the two-story, single-family home, the fire department reports.
Once on scene, firefighters saw smoke coming from the second floor and heard an elderly man crying for help.
The crew then initiated what they called an “aggressive victim rescue operation” and was able to pull him from the house.
Emergency medical staff took the unconscious man to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treatment. The man was revived at the hospital, the fire department said.
The fire that caused an estimated $12,000 in damage also displaced six people.
