A woman is recovering after she was injured during a house fire in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.
The fire started at a home on the 3600 block of N. Marvine Street at 6:47 p.m. Tuesday. After firefighters brought the blaze under control they found an injured 24-year-old woman inside. She was taken to Temple University Hospital where she is currently in stable condition.
Neighbors told NBC10 the woman has special needs and they're grateful that the firefighters responded quickly.
"They pulled her out," said Lawrence Burgess. "They went into the smoke and did their jobs."
