Woman Critically Injured In Fire

A Clearwater woman is being taken to the hospital at this hour after suffering serious injuries in a fire.

Clearwater Fire & Rescue and Clearwater Police were called to 2880 Lemonwood Street shortly before 11 p.m.

It is unsure at this time whether the woman set herself on fire or someone else did it. She originally was going to be taken by helicopter to the hospital, but instead is being transported by ambulance to Morton Plant.

Lemonwood Street is located in eastern Clearwater -- west of McMullen Booth Road and south of State Road 590.

(I will be en route to the scene shortly for anyone needing sound on this

case.)
