Father rescues children from burning homePosted: Updated:
Near SPRINGDALE Wash. - A fire destroyed a home near Springdale on Tuesday afternoon, and a father and his two small children escaped just in the nick of time.
The father says he was inside his two story home on Jepsen Road home when he noticed a glow in his sliding glass door. He went outside to see what the glow was, then noticed the glow was coming from a fire. Just as he shut the door, the glass shattered. He ran back inside the house and brought his 5-year old child to safety, then ran back inside to rescue his sleeping 2-year old child. Everyone made it out unharmed.
Firefighters suspect the fire was caused by a malfunctioning pellet stove. The home is a total loss.
The Red Cross is helping the family with shelter and other necessities.
