UPDATE: Neighbors Save Family From Fire

SPOKANE, Wash. - Three people were taken to the hospital following a house fire at the intersection of Denver and Carlisle Sunday morning, but it would've been a much worse situation if it hadn't been for some alert neighbors.

Two girls, Maggie and Katie Bickell, were playing outside when they noticed smoke coming from their neighbor's home. They told their parents, who called 911 and then ran outside to help. When the neighbor, Jeff Bickell, arrived he found a woman holding a baby outside the 2nd story window. He yelled for her to drop the baby down to him. She did and he caught it. The woman then jumped from the same window to the ground below.

At the same time, another neighbor, Jeremy Driskell, broke through a window on the first floor and entered the home trying to find a third occupant. Once he located her, he dragged her out of the home. It was at this point that firefighters arrived on scene to find the house fully engulfed in smoke and flames. They checked the house for other occupants, but found it was empty and were able to put the flames out.

Medstar was initially called in for the woman who was taken from the first floor, as she had suffered serious burns to her body. Medstar was eventually canceled and she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. She is listed in critical condition. The second woman who jumped from the 2nd floor, and the baby were also taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation. They are expected to be ok.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but it appears to have started on the first floor. The home suffered major damage.

The Spokane Fire Department credits the neighbors with saving the lives of everyone in the home.
