Warren firefighters carry woman to safety


WARREN -- Two city firefighters are being credited for carrying a woman to safety after her home caught fire Wednesday afternoon.
Firefighters responded to a residential fire at 277 Second St. S.W., at 12:01 p.m.
Upon arrival, a neighbor advised the firefighters that 58-year-old Gwendolyn Baugh was still inside.
Crews then broke through the front door and advanced to the second story, where they found Baugh lying on the floor.
Firefighters Marc Titus and Shawn Peura carried the semiconscious Baugh outside and administered oxygen to her.
Baugh was treated for smoke inhalation at St. Joseph Health Center.
The fire damage was contained to one upstairs bedroom, fire officials said. The damage is estimated at 4,000 to the structure and 1,000 to its contents. The cause is still under investigation.
