She was passed out as fire burned on stove



Inside, a grease fire was underway on the stove, while the 61-year-old female resident was passed out on the living room couch.

A fire crew, initially sent to the wrong location, arrived in time to help ventilate the area.

It took several attempts to wake the woman, who seemed incoherent, unaware and intoxicated, which is what a neighbor called her daily state. She was wearing only underwear and police had to help her into her jeans.

By the time an officer returned to the resident, she was passed out again on the couch.

A neighbor said she often did that with a lit cigarette in her hand as well. She was charged with inducing panic (from the fire), and given a summons. Neighbors said they’d take care of her the rest of the night.
