HUNTSVILLE, AL - (WAFF)  Investigators found a three-year old girl after firefighters battled a two alarm blaze in the 1900 block of Stevens Avenue in Huntsville Friday night.

The child's grandmother told investigators she thought the girl might be in the house, so they searched the home. But the child wasn't inside.

Authorities said they found the girl with her grandfather and she is safe.

Before firefighters got there, a neighbor ran into the burning home trying to save the child believed to be inside.

"I tried to run in, " said Michael Green. "Got into about the living room and there was smoke everywhere. I came back out and tired to look for something wet and tried to go back in and the flames had just spread," he added.

Emergency workers took the grandmother to the hospital.
