ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A woman who was small enough to fit through a basement window escaped a St. Paul fire.

Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard says when fire crews arrived at about 10 a.m. Sunday they found a 22-year-old woman had escaped, but five Chihuahuas died. Rescuers were able to resuscitate another one.

Zaccard said the basement bedroom where the woman was sleeping lacked a large enough window to meet fire code and the only reason she got out was because she was small. He said they nearly had their third fire fatality this year.

St. Paul fire investigator Jamie Novak cited an improperly extinguished hookah, or water pipe, as the fire's cause. He says the homeowner's 17-year-old nephew had been smoking it before he left for church that morning.
