Two children were rescued by Garner firefighters this morning. The 3-year-old boy and 1-year-old-girl were pulled from a duplex at 901-B Timber Drive. Both suffered burns, smoke inhalation, and heat exhaustion, reports this WRAL story. The boy was not breathing on arrival, and revived by EMS. They were transported to WakeMed, and then again to the burn center at UNC. The fire was dispatched at 1:35 a.m., with arriving crews finding heavy flames from the front porch and first-floor front windows. Two adults escaped without injury.
