COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Two firefighters were killed in a fire in Colerain Township on Friday morning, Cincinnati television station WLWT reported.

The fire was reported around 6:30 a.m. at a home on Squirrels Nest Lane. Two members of the first arriving Colerain Township fire crew went into the home to start fighting the fire.

More firefighters arrived but they lost radio contact with the firefighters. A second alarm was issued and units from nearby Fairfield were called to assist.



Shortly thereafter, the fire command still could not reach the lost firefighters and made a mayday call to track all the firefighters. Other firefighters found a fire hose in the home without anyone around it.

Fire Department spokesman Steve Conn said that it appears that the home's floor collapsed, sending both firefighters into the basement. Both were covered in rubble when they were found, Conn said.

No names have been released. Conn said both firefighters' bodies have been recovered from the home.

The last time a Colerain Township firefighter died in the line of duty was in the 1970s, Conn said.
