TULSA - Update
The female homeowner who was taken to the hospital was reported by family members to be in stable condition late Tuesday evening.
Quick thinking by a mailman and a young neighbor may have saved a Broken Arrow woman's life Tuesday and prevented a housefire from spreading to nearby homes.
The call to 911 came in at 2:17 p.m., according to firefighters on the scene.
KRMG had the only reporter on the scene as the dramatic story unfolded through witness accounts and the stories of those involved in the rescue.
Juan Rodriguez and his sister Estrella live across the street from the house that caught fire, in the 1100 block of N. Cypress, just northeast of E. 71st St. and S. Garnett in Broken Arrow.
He says he heard the smoke alarm and looked across the street to see smoke pouring from around the garage door of the burning home.
The door came up and he saw the female homeowner surrounded by smoke and flames.
That's when mailman Michael Mohr arrived on the scene.
He told KRMG he saw the woman climbing up on her car and yelling about her dog.
He and Rodriguez each took an arm, helped her down from the car and out of the garage and took her to the mail truck to sit down.
"My dog, don't forget my dog," she kept saying, according to Mohr. They tried to go into the kitchen from the garage, but it wasn't possible.
"It was just black and glowing orange on the inside and the glass started popping out," he said. They knew there was nothing they could do.
Battalion Chief Jim Bright of the Broken Arrow Fire Department says firefighters did find the dog, still alive, but tells KRMG he's not sure where it got off to after they got it out of the house.
There was no word on the condition of the woman who owned the home.
Chief Bright said it didn't appear she was burned, but did suffer from smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
