Woman rescued from Cambridge fire
CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts – CBS Boston reports that three firefighters were hurt and a woman was rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest during a fire in Cambridge on Wednesday morning.
Cambridge Fire Chief Gerry Mahoney said firefighters made a “heroic effort” to search for a woman inside.
“We have also had three firefighters transported to area hospitals due to an assortment of injuries,” Chief Mahoney told CBS Boston.
A section of ceiling collapsed onto one firefighter, another had a leg injury and a third had a shoulder injury.
Mahoney said firefighters had a hard time getting to the house because the yard was overgrown and there was a car in the driveway.
