Firefighters rescue a mother and her 2 children in Bazetta Township

Updated:

BAZETTA TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Early Saturday morning, Bazetta Township firefighters were called to a home on Hoagland Blackstub Road to rescue a sleeping mother and her kids from the second floor of a smoke filled home.

A neighbor at that duplex tells 21 News all the smoke provided a scare and a wakeup call to install smoke detectors since neither apartment had them.

"They had to go in and get them all out because they were sound asleep. So they went in and got them all out. It happened about 1:30 this morning," said neighbor Rose Ann Gordon.

"We transported the three patients, the mother and two children, to the hospital with minor smoke inhalation. We also transported a deputy to the hospital that tried to make a rescue and he had minor smoke inhalation also," said Bazetta Township Fire Chief Dennis Lewis.

Chief Lewis emphasizes that everyone should have a working smoke detector. He is reminding Bazetta Township residents that if you can't afford one, call the township. There are a few left that the department can give away for free.
