CARTER LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A city worker has helped a woman and her infant daughter escape a fire that damaged their home in Carter Lake.

Authorities say Ronnie Fisher and Mark Murray were driving by the home a little before 1 p.m. on Tuesday when they saw smoke billowing from the back of the residence. Murray called 911 while Fisher went to the front door and pounded on it. He told Tiffany Peck her house was on fire when she answered the door.

Peck grabbed her daughter, Fisher helped corral Peck’s dog and they all fled the house. No injuries have been reported.

An electrical problem is suspected as the fire cause.
