Elderly couple hospitalized after house fire
DAVIE, Fla. (WSVN) -- An elderly couple is recovering from smoke inhalation after their home went up in flames, Tuesday morning.
The fire happened at Southwest 36th Court and 60th Terrace. When fire units arrived, the townhouse was filled with heavy smoke and flames.
One neighbor is thankful the complex had their safety features recently checked. "Thank God we had the 40-year building inspection last week and got brand new smoke detectors, otherwise they would have been asleep. That's really what probably save their lives," said George Cornish.
The fire was extinguished, and now the cause of the blaze is under investigation.
