Racine, Wis. — Debrah Scott nearly lost her life in a house fire when she was a little girl. Her face still bears some of the scars of that blaze in which she and her sister were rescued, friends and family members said.

Just before 1 a.m. Thursday, Scott, now 28, ran across the street to the home of her parents in the 1900 block of Linden Ave. She banged on the door and called the Fire Department from there. Now her house was on fire, her four children were trapped - and she could hear them screaming, Racine Fire Chief Steve Hansen said.
