clauses of result in final position

Hello, everyone.

Sentence:

1, In order to put out the terrible fire in a high building, 20 firefighters in Hengyang, Hunan province succeeded in rushing into the building, unfortunately caught in the fire.

2, He walked a long way home, exhausted.

Sentence 2 seems correct. "Exhausted" expresses the state after his walking home. 

I want to know if sentence 2 also works if I understand "caught" as a state after they rushed into the building.

The question derives from a previous discussion: https://thegrammarexchange.inf...6#583405316546362986

I cut off the last few words in the original sentence, hoping to make it grammatical this way.
