A woman is in critical condition after a house fire broke in Fort Worth Wednesday morning.
The fire was at a home on Winnie Street, near Lancaster Road and East Loop 820 in the eastern part of the city.
According to reports from the Firefighters, they arrived at the scene after 7 a.m. and found heavy smoke and flames. They went inside and pulled a woman from the home.
Mike Drivdahl, a spokesman for the Fort Worth Fire Department said, "They knew roughly where they believed the patient may be trapped so they were able to make entry to that room, find the resident and then bring them out. That patient is in critical condition right now."
Officials have not released the information of anyone but family members told media that she is a woman in her 70s whose husband had already gone to work for the day.
Drivdahl said, "It’s just hard to even imagine what this family is going through right now and we feel for them."
There’s no word yet on what caused the fire. Crews from Atmos Energy, as well as arson investigators, responded to the scene.
