EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — The Evansville Fire Department says crews were able to find and pull a child from a fire that damaged a home Friday morning.
Officials say they were dispatched to a home on East Michigan Street for a possible fire with a child trapped on the second floor. On arrival, EFD states they did an aggressive search of the upstairs once they confirmed the blaze.
“Interior temperatures were extremely hot and smoke conditions made visibility almost impossible,” shared the department on social media.
The fire department says firefighters were able to find the 3-year-old girl and get her out of the house with a ladder at the second floor window.
