CONCORD, Calif. (AP) — Contra Costa firefighters have rescued two women from a burning home in Concord.
The one-alarm fire broke out around 1:30 a.m. Friday. Contra Costa Fire District Battalion Chief Terry Buck said Concord police could hear people inside but couldn't get in because of heavy smoke.
When firefighters arrived, they found a woman in the hallway and helped her out. They then went back in and carried an elderly woman from the home.
The women were taken to a hospital for mild smoke inhalation and are expected to recover.
Buck told the Contra Costa Times (http://bit.ly/nGpnx6 ) the fire caused about $100,000 in damage. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
