SEATTLE —

A kind and fast-moving neighbor rescued a disabled Seattle women from a Christmas morning house fire.

The neighbor, who did not want to be identified, called the woman early Tuesday morning to check on her because the woman's daughter recently passed away. The homeowner, who is confined to a wheelchair, said her house was on fire.

KOMO-TV ( http://is.gd/aI7duI) reports the neighbor rushed over to the house, kicked down the door and told the homeowner to move to the back of the house, where there's a wheelchair ramp. The neighbor then went around the house and helped the woman down the ramp.

Firefighters were on scene moments later and were able to quickly put out the fire. There were no injuries, and firefighters rescued the woman's two dogs.
