Elderly Woman Dragged from Burning Motorhome

It happened in Moroni, in Sanpete County, and the fire spread quickly. The 70-year old mother is an amputee and uses a wheelchair. She couldn't escape so her daughter and a friend dragged her out of the home before firefighters got there.

The mother is in critical condition at the University of Utah Medical Center's burn unit. The motorhome was destroyed.

So far investigators think the fire could have started in a wood burning stove.
