An elderly woman’s recovering in hospital after being pulled unconscious from a burning house in Umina Beach this afternoon.
Investigators remain on scene at Fleet Street, after crews from Umina and Kariong received numerous triple 0 calls about the blaze around 12:30 this afternoon.
They found the flames burning through the roof of the property, needing a few hours to get the blaze out.
There are no reports on the woman’s age or the extent of her injuries at this stage.
Fire and Rescue Inspector Mark Delves says the home’s suffered pretty serious damage that’s compromised its structural integrity.
