GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A woman was seriously burned in a mobile home fire Wednesday in Greensboro. 

The fire was reported at the McConnell Crossing mobile home park off McConnell Road shortly before 11 a.m. 

Greensboro Fire Chief Bryant Staples said a woman in her 40s suffered burns over 90 percent of her body. 

The woman, whose name will be released pending notification of relatives, was taken to the Burn Center at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital, Staples said.

The woman’s husband was taken to Moses Cone Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, Staples said. 

Witnesses at the scene said a maintenance worker with the mobile home park pulled the woman from the burning home. 

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation. 

Firefighters from both Greensboro and Guilford County responded to the scene, as the area was recently annexed by the city. 

No other details were immediately available.
