The fire started at a duplex in the 3800 block of Lila Street at Ralston Street.

Despite smoke pouring out of the building from the second floor, those near the scene say the 40-year-old man plucked his 10-year-old, 4-year-old and 2-year-old from the scary inferno.

Fortunately, the children only suffered minor smoke inhalation; the father had burns on his feet and hands.
