An elderly woman who requires a wheelchair managed to escape a house fire on the Mountain, thanks to help from a couple of neighbours.
Fire broke out in a residence at 978 Concession Street, just east of Upper Gage, at around 5:30 Friday afternoon.
Emergency crews were quick to douse the fire and limit the damage.
Two local residents, a father and his daughter, helped the homeowner to safety before firefighters arrived.
She was later taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Cause of the fire is undetermined.
Damage is estimated at $200,000.
