BALTIMORE TWP., Mich. -- A bedridden woman was rescued from a house fire in Barry County early Wednesday, but she was injured seriously enough to be flown to a hospital in Grand Rapids.

The call came in shortly before 5:00 a.m. for a possible structure fire and a report of a bedridden woman on the second floor, Hastings Fire Chief Roger Caris told FOX 17.

"She was burnt pretty bad, but she was breathing," said Caris.

Caris told us that it was a father and daughter in the home at the time of the fire. The father was also hospitalized with unknown injuries. Two dogs made it out safe.

M-37 was closed for a time at the fire scene near Tebo Road in Baltimore Township north of Dowling in Barry County. The highway was reopened by 6 a.m.

Investigation of the fire will be handled by Michigan State Police.
