SEATTLE (AP) — The Grays Harbor Coroner says a mother and daughter from Idaho died early Friday in a raging house fire in Washington state where three others were rescued.

Dan Burns says the women were 54 and 26. He did not release their identities pending notification of relatives.

Aberdeen Fire Chief Tom Hubbard says fast-acting neighbors helped rescue three others from the house fire, which began about 5 a.m.

He says neighbors used a ladder to help an elderly couple escape out of a window, while another woman jumped from the roof into the arms of a neighbor and a police officer who responded.
