LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A Lubbock woman was taken to the hospital after she managed to escape her burning house Saturday afternoon. The fire started just after 1 p.m. in the 1100 block of East Newcomb near the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport. 

Firefighters that responded to the scene say flames completely engulfed one of the front bedrooms. Crews were able to keep the blaze from spreading to the rest of the house, however there was significant smoke damage. 

EMS transported the woman with minor burns and treated her for smoke inhalation. The Lubbock Fire Department says she was the only one inside the house when the fire started. The Lubbock Fire Marshal's office will investigate what started the blaze.
