A daughter desperately tried to save her bedridden mother from a terrible house fire, Saturday night, but sadly fire officials confirm the elderly woman passed away. The victim’s daughter and a firefighter who was trying to help save the elderly woman were also hospitalized with injuries. Fire officials confirm the incident happened in the 2400 block of Haff Drive in Sterling Heights just before 10pm, Saturday night. According to a neighbor, Fred Jabboori, the daughter knocked on his door around 9:45 p.m., looking for help."She was explaining to us that her mother is trapped inside of her home… which had apparently caught fire," Jabboori told Fox 2. Jabboori’s wife called 911 and he went next door to see if he could assist. "From the driveway, I could see that the now boarded up the room where her mother would normally sleep… was completely engulfed in flames," Jabboori said.
