      New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker saves woman from burining home

      NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Hospital officials say the woman rescued from a burning home in Newark, N.J., by the city's mayor has been admitted to intensive care in serious condition.

      Fire officials say 47-year-old Zina Hodge suffered second-degree burns to her back and neck and smoke inhalation.

      Mayor Cory Booker ran through a burning kitchen to rescue his neighbor from her second-floor bedroom late Thursday. He suffered a burned hand and smoke inhalation.

      A spokesman at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, which has a major burn center, says Hodge is in intensive care.

      Fire officials had earlier reported her condition as stable.
