The man was treated at the scene for burns to his legs before he was sent to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, WLWT Channel 5 reports.

As they brought the dog out of the house, a woman ran up to firefighters saying a family member had gone into labor in a house across the street, according to Local 12.

Firefighters and EMS workers then went to the home and helped deliver a baby girl. The mother and child also were taken to UC Medical Center.

No other injuries were reported.
