Homeless man rescues 2 children from a burning building

Both children were taken away from the building to a safe area then to a medical center to be checked for minor smoke inhalation.

Anival Angulo, of Las Vegas, who is now homeless, was walking by the apartment building and noticed smoke so he went around to see what it was.

He heard children crying and jumped a locked gate into the yard of the complex, where he forced a security door open to free the children - a 10-month-old boy and 3-year-old girl. "I knew I had to get them out".

Anival Angulo, 36, rescued the three-year-old girl and 10-month-old boy after he noticed smoke coming from the building.

The little girl told fire investigators the fire grew quickly and caused a lot of smoke, which made her scared, officials said. Firefighters went in the front door looking for the children and battled the blaze which was also in the front of the apartment. He rescued the two children, who were treated at a hospital for minor smoke inhalation.

The child was unable to get the steel door open, so Angulo began pulling on it until it bent upward and the deadbolt lock unlatched. They had the fire under control within 10 minutes of arriving at the scene.

The children's grandfather was watching them, he said, and was in a back bedroom.

The incidents were said to have taken place from the 1960s to the 1980s and are being investigated by Robert J. Cleary, a former USA attorney and the head of investigations at the Proskauer Rose law firm.

Through the smoke, Angulo could see the leg of an infant on the floor, so he pulled the infant out of harm's way.

The inferno started with food cooking on the stove, a fire department spokesman said.

There were no other reported injuries. The Red Cross says its helping three adults and a child who were displaced by the fire.

The fire destroyed the kitchen and living room and there were severe heat and smoke damage to the rest of the apartment. But there was about $50,000 in damage to the home, with most of it in the kitchen and living room.
