At approximately 7:03 a.m. on October 30, 2008, the owner of the residence notified EOC that his house was on fire after he searched for his son. The owner stated he was on the second floor in his son’s bedroom searching for his son until the heat from the flames became unbearable and the smoke made it difficult to breathe. After the owner then called EOC after he exited the residence. Ellendale Fire Department and Medic 101 were alerted for a house fire on Main Street near the railroad tracks with subjects reported trapped. 75 Command (Chief H.

Arriving fireman made entry and found fire conditions on the second floor. The fire crew Daryl Trotman, Kyle Perry, and Tom Berry extinguished the fire on the second floor and performed a search.
