Elderly Woman Rescued From Burning Home Minute Before Explosion

(Beaverton, OR)  --  A 95-year-old woman is lucky to be alive after being rescued from her burning home just minutes before it exploded.  KATU reports the woman was inside her trailer home in Beaverton yesterday afternoon when it caught fire.  The woman called 9-1-1 and then yelled out for assistance, prompting two of her neighbors to rush in to the home and carry her out.  The two men say some oxygen tanks inside the home exploded roughly a minute after they carried the woman to safety.  Fire officials say the woman suffered some burns but is otherwise doing all right.
