The fire broke out shortly after 10 a.m. at a two-story home on Burlingame Avenue near Clovis Avenue.
By the time fire fighters arrived, there was already heavy smoke and fire coming from the front door and windows.
The owner was home at the time. A smoke detector woke her up and she was able to get out, but not before suffering first degree burns and smoke inhalation.
Doctors treated the woman at Clovis Community Hospital. Damage to the home is estimated around $250,000 dollars. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
