Two fire units called to Saturday night fire
A WOMAN in her fifties was taken to Toowoomba Base Hospital suffering from smoke inhalation after a cushion started a fire in a Gannan St, Clifton, home.
The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service from Clifton and Allora were called to the fire at 10.51pm Saturday.
A spokesman for the QFES said a candle had been knocked over and started the fire in a cushion in the lounge room.
"The only occupant of the house took the cushion outside,” she said.
"The Clifton crew was first on scene and the fire had been extinguished and they stopped the Allora crew before it reached Clifton.”
The Queensland Ambulance Service said the woman was transported to hospital in Toowoomba suffering from smoke inhalation. She was in a stable condition.
