Fort Worth Firefighters Come Upon House Fire by Chance, Rescue Elderly Woman

By Deanna Boyd, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Dec. 26 — FORT WORTH — An elderly woman was critically injured Thursday morning in a house fire discovered by firefighters who had seen smoke in the area.

The engine crew from Station 5 had just left a false alarm at John Peter Smith Hospital when they noticed the smoke and followed it to a home in the 900 block of East Maddox Avenue, according to Tim Hardeman, a fire department spokesman.

“They were returning back to the station and they saw the smoke,” Hardeman said. “They drove this way to see if they could locate the source and they found the smoke coming from this house.”

The firefighters located the woman in an upstairs room in the two-story house. They brought her down and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until MedStar paramedics arrived.

The woman, who had suffered burns and smoke inhalation in the blaze, was taken to an area hospital. Her condition was unknown Thursday afternoon.

Hardeman said the woman is believed to live at the house with an adult son and grandson. She was when alone the fire ignited, he said.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation Thursday afternoon, Hardeman said.

Hardeman said family members arrived at the house as firefighters were on the scene.

As firefighters carried planks of plywood to secure the back of the home, the injured woman’s grandson sat on the sidewalk nearby, looking stunned.
