ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two people are being treated for injuries in Missouri after entering a neighbor’s burning home to rescue a child.
The St. Louis Fire Department says a blaze broke out Thursday afternoon at a home on the city’s south side. The department says two neighbors rescued a child and were injured when they escaped the blaze through a broken window. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The child’s age and gender were not immediately released, and authorities say the child was being evaluated for injuries.
The one-story brick home had smoke pouring out of it by the time firefighters arrived. It’s not yet known if anyone else was in the home at the time of the fire.
