EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
An Evansville woman is rescued after her home catches fire.
The fire broke out around 11:00 p.m. last night at a house near the intersection of Fourth and Maryland in Evansville. Witnesses say one woman was rescued from inside the home, but her two dogs were killed in the fire.
The fire department says the fire happened at about 12:50 a.m. Sunday morning, and that it took about an hour to put it out. Witnesses say the woman involved in the fire is Kathy Williams and that she is now in stable condition at Deaconess Hospital.
They also say they believe the fire could have been prevented.
Curtis Broshears lives next door to Williams, and says at about 6:00 p.m. Saturday, he was concerned for Williams' well-being after a friend told him Williams had fallen and injured herself in her home.
Broshears says he has kidney cancer and was not feeling strong enough to help lift Williams off the ground. Broshears says he called Central Dispatch to request a welfare check on Williams, and that he was told it wouldn't be possible since most police units were at the Fall Festival.
Broshears says he then went to an emergency room to receive treatment for his illness. Upon leaving the ER, Broshears says he listened to a scanner and heard the dispatch call of the fire at Williams' home.
Broshears says he strongly feels the fire could have been prevented if that welfare check would have taken place earlier.
"It's bad when officers are out here, supposed to serve and protect, and they couldn't send someone over here just checking into welfare on her. Like I said, more than likely, it could have been avoided, if they would have," Broshears said.
So far, we have not received a confirmed cause of the fire from Evansville Fire Department.
Central Dispatch was contacted for a response to the accusation that they did not respond to the welfare check request. They say we won't get more information on the details of the fire and the surrounding circumstances until Monday.
We will update this story as we learn those details.
