CAMBRIDGE, Minn. (AP) - A sheriff’s deputy has rescued an 81-year-old woman from a house fire with help from a passer-by in east-central Minnesota.

The Isanti (eye-SAN’-tee) County sheriff’s office was called just after 8 a.m. Monday on a report of a garage fire. Another caller reported a family member was still inside the home, which also was on fire.

Several family members, the deputy and the passer-by were treated for smoke inhalation and minor injuries.

The fire is under investigation.
