Barefoot, she immediately responded to the scene, where she entered the home’s front door to dense smoke and intense heat inside. She ran to the master bedroom, which was aflame, and found Ms. Henry sitting on the bed. She picked Ms. Henry up and returned to the front door with her, flames spreading quickly to engulf and destroy the structure. Neither woman was injured.
