The resident and two others in the building suffered minor smoke inhalation injuries. One was a 10th floor occupant who encountered smoke in the stairwell. The three were treated at the scene and declined to be taken to a local hospital, Raisch said.
“We’re fortunate it wasn’t a much bigger incident than it could have been, and that it was only a smoldering fire,” Raisch said.
The fire was not in the nearby Dayton Towers apartment building.
A second alarm has been requested after a reported fire at the Jaycee Towers high-rise apartment building in Dayton Friday afternoon.
Crews responded to 440 Dayton Towers Drive around 2:45 p.m. and reported heavy smoke coming from one of the floors in the building.
Initial reports indicate the fire was contained to one area of a fifth-floor apartment. Residents on surrounding floors have been evacuated, reports indicate.
