The sheriff's office says deputies began knocking out windows to try and locate the resident. When this was unsuccessful, they entered the home through the back door, but couldn't proceed because of the heat and smoke.

Two Hartselle firefighters arrived and entered the fire, a third firefighter manned a water hose and they were joined by the Oak Ridge Volunteer Fire Department, the sheriff's office says. The firefighters located the resident and carried her out of the home.

The sheriff's office says CPR was performed on the victim, and she was transported to Decatur Morgan Hospital and then on to Birmingham.
