HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Two people were sent to the hospital on Saturday following a house fire.

Huntsville police responded to fire on Rothmore Drive around 11:50 p.m. in order to assist Huntsville Fire. Police said firefighters discovered an unresponsive female in the house and pulled her from the residence.

The woman was identified as Clara Giudici. Police said HEMSI medics began treating Giudici and took her to Huntsville Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Officers said a male was also taken to Huntsville Hospital by HEMSI, but his injuries were not life-threatening.

Neighbors said the fire spread rapidly.

"We were worried about some of the other houses going up because of the flames and embers," said Keil Bishop. "I know the couple that lives behind them was out looking. There was a lot of people. From midnight, they had this street blocked off; people couldn't get home."

Huntsville Fire and Huntsville Police are still investigating the cause of this fire.
