Hero mother saves daughters, pets from house fire
A woman from Dieren showed her superpowers during the early hours of Wednesday morning when she managed to rescue her kids and her pets from a house fire. The woman woke around 02:45 a.m. and heard a strange noise coming from upstairs, the Gelderlander reports. She soon realized that the upper floor of her house was on fire. The mom didn't hesitate for a moment. She got her two young daughters out of their rooms and brought them to safety. Then she went back in and rescued her dog and her rabbit. Firefighters from both Dieren and Doesburg responded to the house on Sem Dresdenlaan. The house was declared uninhabitable. The cause of the fire is still unknown. The family and pets were taken in in the neighborhood.
