CENTRAL POINT, Ore. (AP) - Three people pulled their 85-year-old neighbor from the flames as her home burned north of Medford.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/0uuY9t ) Irene Jones was saved from more serious injuries after her neighbors heard her screaming for help Tuesday morning at her Central Point home.

Albert and Devin Kyne heard Jones screaming and they, along with Christopher Currier, rushed to Jones’ aid.

Kyne said he shouted, “Get out of the house,” but Jones wasn’t moving quickly, so he pulled her away. Her hair caught fire, as did clothes on her back, so they rolled her on the ground to put out the flames.

Jones’ daughter Carin Drake said Jones had recently undergone surgery on her toe and couldn’t move very well.

Jones was taken to a hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
