The Detroit Fire Department says Dorothy Edmund was alone in her apartment bedroom when a fire started in the kitchen area.
Neighbors saw smoke and broke a window on the other side of the home to get inside and pull her out.
Edmund was taken to a nearby hospital. The Fire Department believes she is in stable condition.
Firefighters went to the home and doused the flames.
