A Monroe County Deputy and a Spencerport school teacher teamed up this week to rescue a woman in her 80s from her burning home in Parma.
Deputy Jayme Woodin and Social Studies Teacher Jody Wyant ran into the burning garage after spotting the victim lying on the steps inside, pulling her to safety.
Wyant says he and his wife had been driving down Webster Road when they spotted the smoke. They pulled into the driveway and Wyant thought he heard something from the garage. He opened the door and saw the victim collapsed on the steps leading into the house.
Jamye Wyant had been on patrol in the neighborhood and heard the original 911 call from the fire victim. She pulled up just as Wyant came out of the garage, waved and yelled there was someone inside. She says both pushed their way through heavy, black smoke to find the victim.
The elderly woman is being treated at Strong Memorial Hospital and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
