Last updated on Wednesday, March 31, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Firefighters are crediting a 14-year-old babysitter with saving at least two lives Tuesday morning during a house fire that injured four children on the near south side of Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Fire Department Captain Rita Reith says the 14-year-old boy apparently woke up when the fire broke out and managed to help two other children out of the burning building.

A 3-year-old and 7-year-old were critically injured. The babysitter and an 8-year-old suffered serious burns.
