He was rushed to a local hospital. No word on his condition. Three other people escaped the home without injury. Dayton Fire Department says they had to let the house burn after the roof collapsed.

“We let that fire burn through the roof in the rear of the structure because it had been collapsed, it was an unsafe structure, we couldn’t put anyone inside to put the fire, so we had to let it burn the roof off so we could put it out,” said District Chief Rennes Bowers.
