PHOTOS: A woman is in critical condition Monday, Sept. 19, after being rescued from her back deck during a raging house fire.
The woman, whose name has not been released, was trapped on the deck of the Cutlerville home.
Kent County sheriff’s deputies could not reach the woman but firefighters from Cutlerville, Dutton Township and Kentwood were able to rescue her while deputies sprayed water from fire hoses. Sheriff’s deputies and Cutlerville firefighters responded around 12:20 a.m. to a report of a house explosion and fire in the 1500 block of Fairwood Court SE.
The Sheriff’s Department released body-worn camera footage of the response. Sheriff’s deputies reached the scene first but could not get to the woman. They rushed fire hoses to the back yard, and started spraying the deck, while firefighters rescued her.
