She ran out of the home, but hurt her foot on the way out.  Crews arrived to find smoke and fire coming from the front of the home and a working fire in the attic.  They were able to quickly extiguish it.

Damage is listed at $8000.

The Red Cross is helping out the occupant and her roommate until they find other accommodations.
