EAST FORSYTH — Firefighters pulled a critically injured woman from a burning home Tuesday afternoon near Chattahoochee River Club in eastern Forsyth County.

The woman was found about 2 p.m., not long after firefighters entered the burning doublewide mobile home on Old Pruitt Road, according to Forsyth County Fire Department Division Chief Jason Shivers.

A medical helicopter was called to the scene, but left when crews decided to take the woman by ambulance to Northside Hospital-Forsyth.

Smoke and flames were coming from the home when firefighters arrived, Shivers said. The initial call to 911 said there could be three people inside, with the other two being children ages 14 and 3.

Crews continued to search for the children, but later determined the teenager was still in school and the young child was not home, Shivers said.

The home is likely a total loss. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

According to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Cpl. Robin Regan, deputies arrived with the first engine and helped set up the hose so firefighters could immediately begin the search.
