      A northeast Missouri woman was rescued from her burning home Friday night.

      The fire was reported right around 7:30 p.m. at the home of Marilyn Cowell. The location of the residence was approximately a mile-and-a-half east of Memphis, Mo. on Highway 136.

      Cowell and a man who also lives at the home were both taken to the hospital in Memphis to be checked out.

      The home is a total loss.

      The cause is unknown at this time.
