Westbrook Fire and Police departments, along with some neighbors, rescued four people from a burning house on Spiers Street late Saturday night.

The report of the fire in the house’s basement came in shortly before midnight on Saturday, while Westbrook Fire and Rescue personnel were already maxed out with two medical calls that had come in within a minute of each other — one of which involved a person who wasn’t breathing. The fire call came in about 15 minutes later, Fire Chief Andrew Turcotte said.

A firetruck was sent from the first EMS call to the fire, where firefighters — including some who were off duty and responded from home — used a ladder through a second floor window to rescue a woman who was trapped on that floor, Turcotte said.
