Emergency crews took two people to a local hospital after a house fire in northeast Atlanta.
Charred remains were apparent on the front of a house on Hosea Williams Drive Sunday morning.
Fire officials said the blaze started at around 2 a.m. Sunday. A man and a woman were inside the house at the time, they said.
When Atlanta Fire rescue crews arrived, they said they pulled out the elderly woman trapped inside the house.
“For this time of the morning they had a very quick response and very quick action upon arrival to get her out and get the fire extinguished,” Asst. Chief Chris Wessels said.
The woman is in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital.
