The Canton woman was rushed to the University of Michigan Hospital after he was pulled unconscious from her smoke-filled home in the 6000 block of Bunker Hill on New Year’s Eve.
A crew from Canton Fire Department’s Station No. 2 was dispatched to the home at 8:50 p.m. on Dec. 31 arrived within minutes to find heavy smoke pouring from the house. Firefighter/paramedics quickly entered and found the unresponsive adult victim, removed him and initiated CPR at the scene.
No other people were found in the home by other responding crews, who encountered thick heavy smoke and intense heat as they searched the home. The fire of unknown origin was quickly brought under control.
The woman the lone occupant of the home, was transported by Canton firefighter/paramedics to St. Mary’s Hospital and then transferred to the University of Michigan Hospital. Her name has not been released, and her condition is not known.
Canton’s Fire Investigation Unit responded to the scene and the fire, which caused about $60,000 damage, remains under investigation.
