KEIZER, OR (KPTV) -

Firefighters responded to a Keizer home late Thursday night, rescuing a man and his young daughter from the flames that could be seen burning the home’s roof.

Crews arrived at the home on Rozilla Court Northeast at 11:39 p.m. after four children, ages 2 to 8, escaped the fire and called 911 from a neighbor’s house.

None of those children were hurt, fire officials said.

The fire is believed to have started in the garage and spread to the attic. 

Firefighters entered the home and pulled out a man and his 6-year-old daughter. 

The girl was transported to Randall Children's Hospital with critical injuries.

The man was also transported to Legacy Emanuel. 

He was also critically injured in the fire.

Fire officials told FOX 12 the home had no working smoke detectors. 

The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately known.
