Woman rescued from roof

Lexington Firefighters used a ladder to pluck a woman from a roof early Thursday.

Firefighters say the woman fell from a third-story fire escape onto the roof of a porch of a home on East Maxwell Street.

The woman, whose name hasn't been released, became stranded.

A firefighter who first tried to reach her partially fell through the roof.

That is when firefighters decided to use a ladder to reach the woman.

They say it was difficult because of trees and power lines along the street.

The woman's name hasn't been released.

Firefighters don't know what she was doing on the fire escape, but firefighters remind people to only use fire escapes in case of a fire.
