Two young children were rescued from a house fire in Birmingham after a suspected arson attack.
Police arrived in Halesowen around 1.00am today to find the mother in the road frantically screaming that her children were inside.
A girl, 5, and boy, 3, were carried from the house on Elizabeth Road by police, firefighters and a neighbour.
Both children were treated in hospital for smoke inhalation but were not seriously hurt in what police say was "almost a tragedy".
A 36-year-old man was arrested from another address in Halesowen a short while later and is being questioned on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life.
