Pregnant woman rescued from burning home

Posted: Updated:
Gwinnett County firefighters rescued two women from a Lilburn home Wednesday morning.

During the fire, the women signaled authorities from a window on the second floor. Firefighters could see the women hanging out the window of the home.

Authorities used a ladder to assist a young woman and her mother out of a window. One of the women rescued was pregnant.

They were able to climb down the ladder without any assistance. Both women were transported to the Gwinnett Medical Center and were treated for minor injuries.

The fire is still under investigation.

Authorities know that the fire started in the basement. They think it could have been sparked by a sauna that was in the house.
