An Elizabethtown woman was hospitalized Sunday after the Elizabethtown Fire Department responded to a call at her home.
Firefighters responded at about 1:45 p.m. to smoke and a fire not visible from outside at 121 Whitehall Street.
The woman, whose identity wasn’t released by Sunday afternoon, was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital and flown to University Hospital in Louisville.
EFD fire investigator Jeremy Goodman said the woman was in stable condition when she left HMH.
The fire began with the woman’s stove and was confined to her kitchen. It didn’t affect five other apartments located in the building, he said.
The woman is listed as sharing the apartment with her son, but no one else was in the apartment when firefighters responded, Goodman said.
The fire is under investigation. Goodman didn’t comment on whether the fire was suspicious.
