They then realise that there is a woman inside hiding in a bathtub in the bathroom, apparently trying to protect herself from the fire.
After making sure she can still breathe, they give her some oxygen before taking her out of the house.
According to local media, the fire was put out and the woman was rushed to hospital with signs of smoke poisoning but her condition is not thought to be serious.
