Witnesses say the officers crawled inside the home to save the woman after they were the first to arrive on scene. They all three had to be treated for smoke inhalation, one is spending the night at Akron General Hospital. The woman's 9-year-old grandson and a friend also escaped the blaze. A dog and a guinea pig died in the fire.
The home was a total loss. Macedonia firefighters were assisted in putting out the blaze by Twinsburg, Aurora, Bedford Heights, and Oakwood.
