PLATTSMOUTH — Authorities say firefighters rescued a woman from her burning home.

Plattsmouth Assistant Fire Chief Bill Dudek said a police officer driving by the house spotted the smoke at about 4:40 p.m. Wednesday and called for help.

Melissa Jacobsen lives nearby and reports that she yelled at arriving firefighters that they should head toward the back of the blazing residence, because she knew the woman slept in a back bedroom.

They got the woman out, and she was flown to an Omaha hospital.

Her name and the cause of the fire haven’t been released.
