Neighbour describes dramatic house fire rescue in Stone Acre Court, West Bowling

A NEIGHBOUR who led a woman out of her burning home to safety said her bravery was "totally out of character"
Donna Jordan, who risked her life after a fire broke out in a first floor maisonette at Stone Acre Court, off Clipstone Street, West Bowling, said she was usually "a scared person who doesn't go out much."
The 30-year-old, who lives just a few doors away from where the drama unfolded, was in the garden with a friend when she heard a strange popping sound. She saw smoke coming from a neighbour's window just after 3pm yesterday.
"I got up and ran. Luckily the woman in the lower flat had come out and opened the security gate so I could get straight in," she said.
"The door to the upstairs flat was unlocked so I just walked in but there was so much smoke I couldn't see a thing. It was black and grey. The only colour I could see was orange and that was the flames in the living room. The fire was flickering up, probably to just below my chest height.
"I could see the woman standing there it was if she was in a trance. I was shouting for her to move towards me but she just stood there.
"She was holding the living room door frame. I had to go to her and put my arm around here. Her skin was so hot I thought she was burning me.
"I talked her round and eventually she listened and started to move. Then she was going on about her cat and her coat. I got her out but I wasn't going to go back in for them. No one's seen the cat since.
