Hobart Indiana Firefighters made a dramatic rescue of two young boys over the weekend.

The mother, who was found feet from her door, did not survive the blaze at 2260 Wayne Street.  She was identified as Jennifer Teel, 29, by her boyfriend and neighbors to the Northwest Indiana Times.

Rescue workers gave both children, ages 2 and 3, CPR after removing them from the fire.

The firefighters called their survival a "miracle" because the toddlers were exposed to such extreme heat.

They said the fire likely started in the kitchen, but the official cause had not been determined.
