Elderly Woman Rescued From Burning Home By Livermore Police Officer
LIVERMORE (CBS SF) — A Livermore police office rescued an elderly woman from a burning house Tuesday night, police said Wednesday.
Multiple calls came in to 911 around 8:50 p.m. Tuesday reporting the fire at 820 Grace Street, and one caller reported an elderly woman trapped inside the home, according to Officer Steve Goard.
Officer Brian Sleeper, the first officer on the scene, was alerted by neighbors of the woman inside the house and immediately kicked open the front door and ran inside, Goard said.
Sleeper found the woman lying on the floor in the master bedroom and carried her out of the house, Goard said.
The woman received medical attention at the scene but was uninjured, Goard said.
The fire’s cause remains under investigation. Anyone with information on the fire is encouraged to call Livermore police at (925) 371-4900.
