BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport woman was rescued this morning after a fire broke out on the porch of her home.

Firefighters needed to carry the woman, who uses a wheelchair, out of her Harriet Street home.

Firefighters say a fire had broken out earlier on the porch and residents had put it out themselves without calling for help. They're not sure if the second fire was the result of the earlier fire not put out properly or had a separate cause.
