Woman rescued from burning duplex near 70th and Dickinson in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Firefighters rescued a woman from a burning duplex on Milwaukee's south side Monday morning. 

The fire broke out around 9:30 a.m. near 70th and Dickinson.

The fire department says initially the woman got out but then went back inside to get some personal belongings and ended up trapped on the second floor. 

"Let's use that as a reminder. Once you're out of a building, stay out of a building if it's on fire," said Aaron Lipski with the Milwaukee Fire Department.

The woman was taken to a local hospital for burns and smoke inhalation. 

Firefighters are still investigating, but say the fire may have started in the kitchen.
