COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

It's a Christmas miracle to say the least, but a group of Columbia firefighters will be recognized for their efforts in saving two children trapped inside a burning home on Deer Pass Way.

Officials say kids' mother and two other children escaped the flaming residence, but she was unable to locate her remaining two kids.

Firefighters soon arrived at the scene around 4 p.m., and authorities say they quickly went into action and entered the home.

A short time later, investigators say the firefighters found the two children on the home's second story and successfully extricated them.

The mother and all four of her children were transported to an area hospital to be treated for unidentified issues.

Investigators have not released an estimate of the damages to the home.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
