“When we arrived, we had fire coming out of the back of the house, first and second floor,” said Fred Haney, Dayton Fire District Chief. “Early indications are that the fire started in the dryer area near the vents. The lint had gotten clogged up.”

A dog was also inside the house when the fire started but Haney said it was rescued.

He said it was a good idea for people to check your dryer vents regularly.

“Clean the lint out of your dryer vent,” said Haney. “It can catch on fire.”

Images from the scene show damage to the back of the house on both the first and second floors.

No injuries were reported.
