BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Palm Beach County firefighters rescued a woman and four rabbits from a burning home early Sunday. Fire officials say the blaze happened at 5:41 a.m. at 9074 Sedgewood Dr.
The first crews on the scene reported smoke from the door and front window of a single family residence and one man outside. The man told firefighters that his wife was in the upstairs bedroom and several family pets were also inside the home.
Fire crews immediately placed a ladder to the second floor bedroom window and entered the home to search for the person. They quickly located the wife and were able to bring her out the same window to safety. Both people were taken to Wellington for treatment.
Crews were also able to locate the four rabbits and bring them out to safety. One rabbit was administered oxygen using one of the county's special PET masks.
The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.
