Woman pulled from burning home

Firefighters pulled a South Lake Tahoe woman from her burning mobile home Thursday morning. Authorities said they are investigating the blaze as suspicious.

Rosemarie Galli, 57, was listed in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit of Barton Memorial Hospital Thursday evening.

A resident at the Tahoe Verde Mobile Home Park reported the fire after seeing smoke coming from Galli’s home on the 1000 block of Julie Lane. When firefighters arrived around 10 a.m. they found Galli unconscious in the living room. Investigators believe she was overcome by smoke inhalation.

A large amount of smoke and some flames were seen coming from the rear windows of the home. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire in a rear room of the residence. Galli’s dog was rescued and taken to animal control.

Authorities haven’t yet determined a preliminary damage estimate, but said the contents were lost and there was interior structural damage.

Investigators said some residents of the park attempted to rescue Galli before firefighters arrived, but the smoke was too much. Residents of the park also started to fight the fire with garden hoses.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury at the scene and was treated at the urgent care center after returning to quarters.

Investigators said they could not comment Thursday on the cause of the blaze.
