Man Killed in Apartment Fire

( Winton Hills ) - An early morning fire leaves one man dead and others hospitalized.  

Firefighters and EMTs were dispatched to the 700 block of Kings Run Drive around 1 o'clock Friday morning. When they arrived, they found multiple units on fire in a three-story building that is part of Winton Woods Apartments, and several residents had already evacuated. 

Firefighters had to rescue two children and a man from a top floor apartment. The two children were taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and are listed in critical condition. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman who was in a different apartment was also hospitalized with burn injuries.

Damage is estimated at $100,000, and crews say it started on the second floor.
