An Idaho woman who helped rescue a child from a burning truck could face criminal charges.

Thirty-four-year-old Tequila Isaacson was driving through Snoqualmie Pass in Washington state on Sunday when she saw a pickup truck in flames at a rest area.

Isaacson said the boy's parents were trying to get him out while another man called 911.

Isaacson broke the glass door of a coffee shop to get a fire extinguisher to help save the boy.

Isaacson said a trooper later told her she would need to pay to replace the glass door or could face burglary charges.

No charges have been filed yet.
