A Windsor woman has been transferred to Detroit Receiving Hospital in critical condition after she suffered smoke inhalation at her home Tuesday morning.

She was home when the fire broke out around 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning at a duplex at 1621 Church St.

"I called the police right away," says 18-year-old Taylan Dargin. He's being hailed a hero for calling emergency crews, after hearing screams from the second floor.

"After like, 5 minutes after, her fire alarm started to go off... and I went outside to check and I see a bunch of smoke coming from up top," Dargin said.

Ontario Fire Marshal and Windsor Fire and Rescue Investigators were on scene Tuesday looking for the cause of the fire.

OFM investigator Dave Emberlin says they know the fire started in the upper unit kitchen, they don’t know what sparked the flames.

“There are two smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector up in the second floor unit, which is required” says Emberlin. “It sounds like they worked.”

Meantime, over in Ford City, firefighters also battled a house fire at 1723 Cadillac St. Tuesday morning.

When they arrived to the single family home after 5:00 a.m., smoke and fire was brimming from the structure.

About an hour later, it was reported out. No one was injured in the blaze.

Investigators say the fire started in the bedroom, but the cause is undetermined.

Damage is estimated in excess of $150,000.
