MEAD, Wash. - Firefighters responded to a house fire Tuesday afternoon in the 3600 block of 2nd Ct. in Mead.
Crews say they received the call around 3:00PM and upon arrival found a home completely engulfed in flames. Neighbors told firefighters they could hear the elderly woman who lives in the home yelling for help, but the flames were too intense for them to run in after her.
Firefighters attacked the fire and were able to put it out and pull the woman out. They administered CPR to her and transported her to a hospital. We are still waiting on her condition.
