Some Bellingham firefighters who pulled a mom and her two daughters from their burning home are being hailed as heroes as the family recovers from its injuries.

The Bellingham Herald ( http://is.gd/PZ1dS6) reports the firefighters saved the three after the father of the family injured himself while trying to get to his family.

The engine company officer who led the dramatic rescue praised the father for providing accurate information that helped firefighters locate his wife and two daughters.

Veteran firefighter Danny Anderson says the outcome could have been entirely different.

A preliminary investigation shows the fire started in the living room where a guest was sleeping. He escaped unharmed. The duplex was destroyed and two cats apparently died.
