An elderly couple escaped a fire at their northeast Fresno home unharmed just after midnight Saturday thanks to a couple of teenagers. The couple was in their bed at the time the fire started. They say two teens knocked on their door to wake them up and then helped them get their car out of the garage.Fresno firefighters responded to the fire, which they say started in the attic, and were able to get it out within a couple hours. So far they do not know what caused it. One firefighter injured his knee while putting the fire out. He was taken to a hospital, treated and released.
