KITCHEN FIRE ON TAFT

Elyria – A kitchen fire drew Elyria Firefighters to a home on Taft Ave late Sunday afternoon.

When Firefighters arrived they were told that there was still a person inside of the home on the second floor. Firefighters entered the home and found a man asleep, woke him and assisted him in getting outside.

Firefighters applied oxygen to the man until LifeCare Paramedics arrived.

The fire was extinguished in only a matter of minutes but not before causing extensive damage to the kitchen. Fire officials say that other rooms in the home sustained heavy smoke and water damage as well.

The exact cause of the blaze was undetermined Sunday night but people close to the family say it was more than likely food left on the stove.

The man that found inside of the home was treated by LifeCare on the scene but refused transport to the hospital.
