A neighbor rescued a woman from her burning apartment in north Houston.

The woman woke up to the smell of smoke in her apartment on Yale near Barkwood but fell when she tried to get out. A neighbor noticed the flames and helped her get out safely.

The woman was not hurt and admits she is a smoker but only smokes outside. It's not clear what started the fire but most of the damage was concentrated in her living room.
