Fourth body found after Cleveland house fire

CLEVELAND-- The fourth suspected victim of a fire on Cleveland's east side was located Tuesday evening.

The blaze happened at about 1 a.m. Tuesday on Hillview Road in Cleveland.

A 46-year-old woman jumped from the second floor and was taken to the Cleveland Clinic, where she remains in stable condition.

Assistant Fire Chief Greg Glauner confirmed that 4 people died in the fire: a 46-year-old man, his 3-year-old son, an 8-year-old granddaughter and a 44-year-old nephew.

They were found from the basement to the first floor, but Glauner said that because the house collapsed in the fire, that might not be where the victims died.

One firefighter sustained a minor knee injury fighting the flames.

Firefighters responding to the scene were unable to get into the house to search because the structure was severely compromised.

Cleveland Fire Chief Angelo Calvillo said earlier that three bodies were located in the afternoon. Crews did  a tactical demolition to find the fourth.

Now that the fourth victim has been located, standard demolition is expected to start.

"It's a very sad day," Calvillo said. "It really touches our hearts when we have a situation like this with a huge loss."

The victims have not been identified and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. Smoke detectors in the house were not working, officials said.
