An elderly woman in her 90s was rescued from a flat in Wheathampstead on Saturday morning (June 13) after a fire broke out.
Three crews from Wheathampstead, Harpenden and Hatfield attended the incident in King Edward Place in High Street at 8.12am, following reports of a fire in the ground floor flat.
They used two sets of breathing apparatus, a hose reel and one covering jet to extinguish the fire, which was believed to be accidental.
They were on the scene until 9.02am.
A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust confirmed officers were called to a flat fire just off the High Street in Wheathampstead at 8.14am.
An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance officer all attended and treated a woman in her 90s.
She was taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
