TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - One person was taken to the hospital after being rescued from a burning house Friday morning in West Toledo.

The fire at a house at Woodstock and Avondale broke out around 4 a.m. The occupant of the home called 911 and told the operator she was trapped in a second-floor bedroom, with the stairs blocked by fire.

A neighbor said a woman who lives at the house was screaming for help from a second-floor window.

The woman lives at the home with her son, according to a neighbor. He was not home at the time.

The home is a total loss. The cause of the fire appears to be accidental, according to TFRD.
