The exact scenario would have to be outlined:
who is nearer the door - mother or gf?
Are either of them in a far room?
how dense is the smoke?
is one behind a locked door?
if so who?
are they both conscious or unconscious?
what are their relative weights?
are either of them trapped under anything?
are either of them injured?

without exact details of a specific scenario, it is difficult to make a call.
The mother might be bed-ridden in a bed-room with the roof about to collapse while the gf might be in the living room near the door and conscious.

No situation is black and white so there can not be a clear right answer or wrong answer especially when you have to make a snap decision based on indivivual circumstances.
