Crews were called to the 23-hundred block of Fuquay just before 9a.m. When firefighters arrived, they found a fire in the basement of the home.
Firefighter Leroy Harts was in the home, asleep at the time. He woke up and quickly called 9-1-1.
Hart has been with Ohio Township since it was established in the 80's.
No word yet on a cause.
