Two people have been taken to the hospital after a two-alarm fire on Route 190 in Somers.

Officials said a 7-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman were taken to Baystate Medical Center. The latest available information is that both were in stable condition.

A passerby stopped and rescued the little girl before firefighters arrived, officials said.

"There was a passerby who stopped and forced entry," Deputy Fire Chief Frank Falcone said. "She was rapidly transported."

The fire started around 8 a.m. in a second-floor bedroom of the house at 68 Main Street, officials said. (Original reports were that the fire was at 61 Main Street.)

The woman was nearly unconscious when firefighters arrived, officials said. 

The cause of the fire has not been determined.

The second floor sustained smoke, heat and fire damage. There was water damage to the first floor.

The road was closed between the Enfield/Somers line and School Street.
