I seen her hand and I thought the kids were there,” said Sergio Zegar, who rescued the woman. “I told her to come on out, she said ‘I can’t,’ I said ‘you have to,’ and I grabbed her hand and by the grace of god another gentleman down the street came out and we pulled her.”

Two individuals are believed to have suffered burns in the blaze. They were taken to the hospital in an unknown condition.
