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.
