Fire Victim In Critical Condition
Updated: Monday, March 11 2013, 07:05 AM EDT
An Asheville woman was rushed to Mission Hospital Friday after being pulled from her burning condominium. Deborah Bebber is listed in critical condition.
The fire on Windswept Drive up on Asheville's Beaucatcher Mountain started at about 11:30 a.m. Friday morning. It was called-in by a neighbor who lives directly below the unit that was destroyed.
About 30 Asheville firefighters responded to the scene and found Bebber's end of the four-unit building fully involved. They made their way inside and discovered her unconscious and the condo filled with thick smoke.
Once firefighters had her out, they checked the rest of the building to make sure no one else was inside. The burning roof eventually collapsed, crashed through Beeber's unit, and into the condominium below.
Fire investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
