A neighbor is credited with saving a 99-year-old woman from a house fire in Brooke County.

The flames began shortly before 10 on Friday morning on Sassafras Lane in McKinleyville.

The neighbor said he saw smoke from his porch and jumped into action, as he barged inside and helped the woman to safety.

Fire crews arrived soon after and put out the flames. No one was hurt. Right now, the cause is unknown.
