this afternoon the Sacramento Fire Department responded to a reported house fire in on Tattershall Way. Firefighters from Sacramento Fire Engine 57 arrived in about 3 ½ minutes and found a working fire in the homes kitchen.
While conducting the search of the home for occupants, Firefighters found a male victim in the back bedroom. The victim was removed by Firefighters and transported to a nearby hospital suffering from smoke inhalation. He is expected to survive.
Apparently the home had no working smoke detectors. The male victim is very lucky to have survived this fire. If not for the quick response of Sacramento Firefighters, and the next door neighbor quickly reporting this fire, there is a very good chance this man would not have survived.
There were no reported injuries to Firefighters. Firefighters from the Sacramento Metro Fire District also responded. The cause of the fire is being investigated by Sacramento Fire Department Investigators.
