Woman taken to the hospital after fire destroys home
WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — EMS took a Wilmington woman to the hospital, after a fire destroyed her home.
It happened just before 4:00 a.m. in the Eastwood Village community just off Eastwood Road. When firefighters arrived, the home was fully involved, which means there was no chance for firefighters to go inside and rescue anyone.
The woman inside the home managed to escape through a window. Firefighters found her lying in the bushes outside. She is in the hospital with non-life threatening injures.
The fire destroyed the home. Total damages are estimated at $250,000.
No word yet on the cause. The investigation continues.
