A Fresno woman remains in critical condition after being rescued Thursday from a burning home in central Fresno.
The blaze broke out sometime before 3 a.m. on the 3600 block of North Warren Avenue, near Dakota and West avenues. When firefighters arrived, they saw flames and smoke erupting from the home and quickly called for more units.
Fresno Fire Department officials said a man and two adult children got out of the burning home through windows, but the woman, Maria Jaquez-Solis, 64, was trapped inside.
Firefighters entered and got her out through a door, but she had suffered smoke inhalation and went into cardiac arrest. Firefighters and emergency workers performed CPR and managed to get her heart going on the way to Community Regional Medical Center.
