Woman found wounded outside burning house in Upland

December 27, 2011 | 10:50 pm

Upland police were searching late Tuesday for two people who fled after leaving a woman critically wounded with “traumatic injuries”  in front of a burning house.

Authorities responded about 7:30 p.m. to calls about a stabbing. Officers arrived to find an injured woman in the front yard of a house near the intersection of Palm Avenue and Alpine Street, said Upland police Lt. Cliff Mathews.

“When they entered they found that the house was on fire and it became quickly engulfed,” Mathews said.

Fire department personnel extinguished the flames. The victim was taken to a hospital, where she remains in critical condition.  

Mathews said it was unclear if the fire was related to the stabbing.

The two people were seen fleeing on foot. Officials did not release any description of the people, and Mathews said no arrests have been made.
