Husband, wife injured in blaze on Oldham Dr.

Two people were hurt last night in what appeared to be an accidental bedroom fire at 5059 Oldham Dr. near Christian Avenue in West Toledo, authorities said.

James A. Dick and his wife, Lucy, were treated at St. Anne Mercy Hospital for smoke inhalation.

The Dicks were home when the fire started about 8:10 p.m. Fire crews arrived minutes later, saw smoke coming from a second-floor window, and ordered the couple out. They were later taken to the hospital, fire Lt. Dan Whitacre said.

The fire apparently started on bed mattresses. The cause is under investigation. Damage was estimated at $20,000.
