WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- A woman who is a double amputee is thankful to be alive along with her pets and son, one week after a deadly fire tore through her apartment complex in Westminster.

Kristen Bering lived inside one of the units in Building E of the Westbury Apartments that caught on fire last Sunday .

Bering credits her survival to two neighbors who broke through her window, dragged her outside and helped her escape the fire.

As she is transitioning into moving to a new apartment in Westminster in August, Bering is hoping to raise money to help pay for the medical bills of the two men who saved her life.
