Two neighbors got the house’s only occupant out, and she was taken to a hospital in fair condition. Her identity was not released.
“I thought it was a bomb that had gone off,” Jim Whitehead, a neighbor, told Channel 2 Action News.
After he ran toward the house, Whitehead said he couldn’t get in the front door, so he ran toward the back. He and another man pulled the woman out.
“She was in the kitchen, actually. I heard her. I was yelling, trying to get anybody’s attention who may have been inside,” Whitehead said. “And I heard her screaming for help.”
