ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Four people were injured in a house fire in a St. Charles County neighborhood Tuesday morning.

The fire happened on Wood Oaks Drive before 7 a.m. When emergency crews arrived on the scene, they reported seeing the home fully engulfed in flames and hearing screams coming from inside. Firefighters entered the home through a side window and lifted a woman out of the same window to an off-duty firefighter and officers with the St. Charles County Police Department.

A firefighter, police officer and St. Charles County sheriff’s deputy were treated for minor injuries. The resident who was rescued was taken to the hospital with what was earlier reported to be serious injuries.

Other people who lived inside the home at the time of the fire escaped before first responders arrived, authorities said.
