PARIT: The quick action of firefighters managed to save two children who were trapped in a house fire in Bandar Universiti, Seri Iskandar here early this morning.

At the time of the incident, the 50-year-old woman lived with her 18-year-old daughter in the house.

He said, upon arrival at the location, it was found that the fire involved the living room of a class A terrace house.

“The two children were aware of the fire but they failed to get out due to the fire raging in the living room.
