NEWMAN LAKE, Wash. --- The mother who rescued her three children from a burning home is now recovering from third degree burns.

On Saturday morning, Angel Fiorini  woke up coughing and saw her Newman Lake house was on fire. Fiorini was able to safely get two of her children outside.

Fiorini ran back inside to rescue her seven-year-old after getting her other two children to safety, according to the fire marshal. The fire badly burned her.

Fiorini had burns on 45 percent of her body.

Two of Fiorini’s kids are doing okay, but another one had to be taken to Harborview Medical Center for burns.

Authorities said there were no smoke detectors in the home. 

A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help support the family.
