OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Firefighters are being credited with saving two people from a house fire in northeast Omaha.

Omaha television station WOWT reports (https://bit.ly/2pHYJ6v ) that an emergency call to report the fire was made early Tuesday morning. When firefighters arrive, flames were coming from the home.

Firefighters forced entry into the home and pulled two occupants to safety.
