SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City woman is recovering after being taken to the hospital when a fire broke out at her home north of downtown.

Firefighters were called to the scene around 6 a.m. Friday and say flames were visible from the front of the home.

Investigators say the fire began on the front porch because of improper use of electrical extension cords and spread to the living room.

The woman was alerted to the fire by her dog and managed to escape. She was taken to a Sioux City hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
