A woman has been pulled semi-conscious from her burning home in Falmouth.

It is after flames ripped through a flat on Arwenack Avenue last night.

It was just before midnight crews were scrambled to the three storey block.

The alarm had been raised by a worried neighbour.

Ten people were evacuated, as firefighters kicked in the door and dragged the woman to safety from the smoke.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Two appliances from Falmouth with eleven crews were mobilised to the incident, on their arrival firefighters confirmed there was a fire in a flat, the alarm was sounding and the occupant of the flat could not be raised.

"Crews forced entry to the flat concerned with two breathing apparatus and a hose reel, discovering the occupant in the property they dragged one semi-conscious casualty from the smoke filled property. The casualty was treated by Ambulance Paramedics and was taken to hospital."

They have told Pirate FM she is "very lucky."

They reckon the blaze started in a cooker.
