A working smoke detector saves a Zanesville man from a fire at his home.
Fire Chief Dave Lacy said the fire broke out around 8:45 Friday morning at 134 Fox Avenue. Smoke could be seen from the fire house on 4th Street.
When firefighters arrived they found a working fire in the back of the structure.
Chief Lacy said one occupant of the home was awakened by a smoke detector and was transported to Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital for smoke inhalation and burns.
