ADRIAN — Emergency crews helped a woman climb out of an upstairs bedroom window Thursday after her Adrian Township home caught fire early Thursday, the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The 60-year-old woman, whose name was not released, called 911 shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday to say her home in the 1000 block of Academy Road was ablaze and she was trapped upstairs, deputies said.

When crews arrived, they found the woman yelling from her window and heavy smoke billowed from the roof, according to the statement. An officer and a firefighter helped her to safety and she was taken to Bixby Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.

The fire’s cause remained under investigation Friday.
