A St. Cloud woman was taken to the hospital with second degree burns after her mobile home caught fire. The incident happened in a mobile home park near the intersection of 10th street and Colombia Avenue in downtown St. Cloud.
Chief Dave Padgett with Osceola County Fire says their engines along with units from St. Cloud Fire were eventually able to knock the fire down.
"They had fire through the roof, approximately 75 percent involved at that time," he said.
The woman was originally able to escape the fire according to Chief Padgett, but was injured when she went back inside.
"She went in to get her animals out, and the neighbor grabbed her and pulled her out of the house," Chief Padgett said.
Neighbor Janie Kohler described the woman's burns as "pretty bad." She said she watched as the woman tried to rescue those animals.
"She went back into the fire, and she did get burned. She got at least second degree burns on her back and her arms, and I'm screaming at her to get out get out."
Osceola County Fire tells FOX 35 they did not see anything that would be an instant and obvious cause of the fire. The state Fire Marshall's Office is investigating the cause.
