PENRHYN BAY, U.K. — A teenage girl used her Christmas present laptop to smash a downstairs window and help her two sisters escape from a fire early yesterday. Alishaa Williams, 13, rescued Louise, eight, and 18-month-old Sophia from the semi-detached home but two family friends - a 32-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man - were fighting for their lives and her mother, 32, was seriously ill.

Within hours of the drama, the selfconfessed Facebook addict posted a message on the social networking site: 'Whataa night .!.!.! Thanks Sandra and Sam :) thanks everyone off the street :) I'm shattered ! Still here ! Feel really ill x.' North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said the children were sleeping in a downstairs bedroom of the semi-detached house at Penrhyn Bay, near Llandudno, when the eldest girl was woken by a smoke alarm.
