HILLSBORO, Mo. (KMOV) – A neighbor rescued a woman from an apartment fire that broke out in Hillsboro Friday morning.

Around 5 a.m., crews were called to 220 Timber Ridge Dr. after reports of flames and smoke coming from the building.

The Hillsboro fire chief says that the fire was contained to the living room in one of the units in the Timber Ridge Apartments.

It is unclear how the fire started.

The victim suffered burns on her hands and arms. Oxygen tanks in her apartment avoided damage and did not explode.
