2 taken to hospital, crews rescue family dog from Huber Heights house fire

UPDATE @ 8:23 p.m.: The two occupants who escaped the house fire on Belmar Drive have been taken to a hospital for possible smoke inhalation, Huber Heights Fire Division Lt. Ken Stiefel said.

Crews rescued a family dog and revived it with oxygen, he said. Montgomery County Animal Resources officers will keep the dog.

The occupants had gotten out of the residence when crews arrived to find heavy smoke pushing from the front of the house. The preliminary investigation shows the bulk of the fire was in the sleeping quarters and a hallway, Stiefel said.

An investigator has been called to establish the cause of the fire, Stiefel said.

He said it was too soon to estimate a dollar loss to the structure and contents. Crews from Butler Twp., Dayton and Riverside assisted Huber Heights, Stiefel said.


Crews are on the scene of a residential fire in the 5700 block of Belmar Drive, Huber Heights.

The incident was dispatched within the last 30 minutes. We’re working to learn whether there have been any injuries.

We have a crew on the way. We will update this developing report as we get details.
