Baby's Cry Saves Family From House Fire

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Fire officials say a family of six escaped unharmed after a baby's cry alerted them to a fire at their Toledo home.

Battalion Fire Chief Christine Davis says the occupants told officials they got up, smelled smoke and everybody got out of the single-family house early Monday after their infant began crying.

Davis says two adults and four children - including the baby - were out of the house by the time fire crews arrived about 4:40 a.m.

Firefighters found the fire in the ceiling insulation of a second-floor bedroom. The blaze spread to the attic from the bedroom ceiling of the two-story frame house.

Davis says an electrical short-circuit started the fire.
