Woman pulled from burning home dies from injuries

Video: Woman rescued from burning DeKalb home

The 60-year-old woman pulled from her burning home two days ago has died, a DeKalb County fire captain said Friday.

Six people were inside the Stone Mountain-area home on Stonehaven Way when the fire started early Wednesday, a family member told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. All but one made it out of the home when firefighters arrived, shortly after 6:30 a.m. By then, the home was 75 percent involved, Capt. Eric Jackson said.

Firefighters tried to enter through the front door, but “there was just far too much flame and smoke conditions, so we went around to the back side,” Jackson said.

Firefighters used a ladder to reach the woman, who was at the base of a window on the second floor.

The woman, whose name was not released, was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, but later died, Jackson said Friday.
