ALBERTON, Mont. (AP) - An Alberton woman was saved from a modular home fire when a passing driver saw the blaze, jumped a fence and brought her outside.

Frenchtown Rural Fire spokesman Mel Holtz says the fire was reported Sunday after a motorist on the Interstate saw the flames and called 911 before going inside to find the victim.

The victim is described as a woman in her 40s or 50s. She was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Holtz says the fire appeared to be suspicious, prompting an investigation by the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
