MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – The quick action of Macomb County Sheriff deputies is being credited with saving a woman trapped in a burning home in Mount Clemens Monday night.

Sheriff Tony Wickersham told WWJ Newsradio 950 deputies arrived at the burning home on Huron Street before the fire department and heard a woman screaming from the second floor.

He said they got a ladder and were able to get her out.

“I’m very proud of our deputies’ actions in saving a life,” Wickersham said. “There was also a neighbor that assisted. I commend the neighbor for getting involved and helping out.”

The woman was taken to the hospital for burns and smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
