A Friday night meal went wrong for one elderly woman in Ribbleton.Advertisement
Three fire engines from Preston and Fulwood pulled the 86-year-old to safety from a fire in Sion Close, off Longridge Road.
The fire had started in a microwave oven around 7.45pm.
The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Royal Preston Hospital.
Fire crews used a ventilation unit and were at the scene for around 40 minutes.
It is the second fire at the sheltered accommodation unit, after crews were called in mid-February to rescue another resident.
