Ann Arbor woman severely burned in apartment fire
A woman was rushed to the University of Michigan Hospital Monday after suffering grease burns during a kitchen fire in Ann Arbor, according to a fire department official.
Ann Arbor Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Vogel said firefighters responded at about 4 p.m. Monday to an apartment in the 1500 block of Pauline Boulevard for a report of an apartment fire.
Vogel said the woman suffered severe grease burns and a dispatcher from Huron Valley Ambulance confirmed that the woman was transported to the hospital under full emergency lights and sirens.
Three children were also treated at the scene of the fire by first responders, but were expected to avoid a trip to the hospital, Vogel said.
Vogel said the apartment only suffered smoke damage and was not in serious disrepair. He said the cause of the fire was still under investigation.
