    Deputies with the Mercer County Sheriff's Department arrested two people Monday night, when it was discovered they were making meth with 2 babies in the house. Deputy Horn said the children are 7 and 18 months old.

Around 7 O'clock on Monday, Larry Stoumile was in the middle of his normal commute when he saw a house engulfed in flames. The first thing he wanted to make sure of was that everyone was okay. He acted quickly and jumped out of the car to assist a neighbor who was outside of the house.

After he stepped in the house the first time, he heard nobody and thought no one was home. He then looked again and found two people, a man and a woman, trapped inside.

"Then basically got attention from the lady that she said she was cooking and the fire was in there and then we got her out because I had to pick her up. Then we had no idea her brother was in there, so I had to go in there by myself, pick him up and carry him across the street," Stoumile said.

The home owner and her brother got out safely and other than some minor burns nobody was seriously injured.
