One Person Injured While Escaping Burning Home


Firefighters responded to a house fire in the Worthington area Thursday morning.

A father and his two adult children escaped the fire on Beechlake Drive.

The man said he was sleeping upstairs when he heard what sounded like someone walking on the roof.

When he got up to check the noise, he saw flames. He said he yelled to alert his children.

The father said his daughter escaped through the first floor, but he believed his son went back inside to save a pet.

The man said his son had to jump out of a window to escape the flames.

He was taken to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for treatment for burns.

Fire investigators were still working to find a cause of that fire.
