A 65 year old woman is in extremely critical condition with burns over 90% of her body following a fire that destroyed her near north side home early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
When firefighters arrived at the house in the 600 block of Dawnview, which is in the DellView area near West Ave, the entire home was engulfed in flames. Firefighters had to enter the burning home and brave severe fire to pull the woman to safety. She was then rushed to the burn unit at SAAMC.
The fire also spread to the house next door, but fire crews kept that house from being severely damaged.
Arson investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
