PHOENIX - An elderly couple is lucky to be alive after their neighbor helped them out of their burning home Monday.
The fire started around 3 p.m. at the couple's home near 83rd Avenue and Osborn.
Phoenix Fire Department officials said the fire started in the attic, but the two didn't notice.
One of their neighbors saw the smoke, knocked on the door and made sure they got out safely.
Crews said the couple suffered minor smoke inhalation, but are expected to be okay.
Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
