Around 70 firefighters were called out around 9:30 Tuesday evening to the 9000 block of Woodmoss Lane. That’s near 91st Street and Allisonville Road.

Two people were rescued from the third floor after the fire broke out. Firefighters spotted the two people yelling for a window for help. Both residents were OK.
