ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) -- Alpharetta police say two officers helped
rescue a father and his two infant children from their burning home.

Alpharetta police spokesman George Gordon says a neighbor who
lives behind the house called 911 after seeing heavy smoke coming
from the house Friday morning.

Gordon says the two officers who arrived ran inside the house to
find one of the residents trying to get the infants out. He says the officers helped the family escape unharmed.

Gordon says fire crews contained the blaze to the back of the
house, which Gordon said has "moderate to extensive" damage. The
cause of the fire is being investigated.
