Missouri Firefighters Pull Woman from Burning Home

A house fire just west of the intersection of Kansas Expressway at Mount Vernon Street sent one woman to the hospital with serious injuries on Friday morning.  Firefighters pulled a woman from the house in the 500 block of South Warren Ave. shortly after 10 a.m, reports ky3.com.

Emergency responders continued CPR on the way to the hospital, as the flames grew. 

“The fire was pushing our firefighters out, so we went to a defensive mode, which means we fight the fire from the outside in until it is safe enough to send firefighters back in,” said Assistant Fire Chief Randy Villines.

While crews have finished battling the fire, Williams knows her neighbor is still in a fight.
