ST. AUGUSTINE — An elderly woman living in a mobile home park was left with severe burns and smoke inhalation, according to authorities.
Maintenance workers rescued the woman from the burning trailer at 245 Wildwood Drive in the Moultrie Oaks mobile home park, officials said.
According to a neighbor, the community is very close. "She was in a wheelchair," he said of the victim. "Lived by herself."
"Three people busted through the door and got her out," Dean Stowell said, another neighbor. "Two of the maintenance workers and somebody else."
Another neighbor, a retired firefighter, said he grabbed a garden hose and started spraying the home. He was trying to protect the house next door, he said.
Stowell said that he heard the woman had burns over 40 percent of her body.
