A fire in a Pleasant Ridge home killed one person Monday morning, according to fire officials. Cincinnati Fire Department District Fire Chief Jason Vollmer said firefighters responded to 5623 Lester Rd. before 3 a.m. Monday. When firefighters got on scene, they went into the home and found 94-year-old Cora Canada dead. “That’s the most difficult part of the job," Vollmer said. "When you can’t get the person you wanted to rescue out.” Firefighters did rescue another person from inside the home, and that person was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Two other people escaped the fire before firefighters got on scene and are safe.
