Neighbors raced to a burning home to free a friend.

Fire gutted a trailer just outside of Catoosa. The woman inside tried to escape through a window, but got stuck.

Neighbors who live a quarter-mile away heard her screams and ran to help.

One of the rescuers, Dylan Hodges, said, "Whenever you see something like that with someone's life in jeopardy, you don't think."

It took four people working together to save her.

Jeff Patterson, one of the rescuers, said, "I just acted. I don't know. I just ran up on the house. I don't know. I wasn't thinkin'. I just ran up on the house and tried to get her out."

The woman was choppered to a hospital.

We currently don't know her condition.
