By  | 

BRIDGEPORT TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (2/18/2018) - A 56-year-old Bridgeport woman and the two police officers who pulled her from a burning house early Saturday are recovering from smoke inhalation.

Rescue workers responded to a duplex at 2822 Germain St. in Bridgeport Township just after midnight Saturday. A Bridgeport Township police officer and Michigan State Police trooper were first to arrive on the scene.

They could hear the woman yelling inside the residence, so they went inside through thick smoke and dragged her safely outdoors.

A Mobile Medical Response ambulance transported the victim to Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw and then Hurley Medical Center in Flint for treatment of smoke inhalation. She was listed in stable condition Sunday.

The Bridgeport Township officer and Michigan State Police trooper both sought treatment for smoke inhalation at St. Mary's Hospital in Saginaw and were released a short time later.

Residents on the other side of the duplex were able to escape safely on their own.

The Bridgeport Fire Department extinguished the fire with assistance from the Buena Vista Township Fire Department.
