Two people are lucky to be alive after their apartment goes up in flames.  A Tempe couple was sound asleep when smoke alarms sounded in their apartment alerting them to a fire. The fire spread quickly and forced the couple inside their bathroom where they blocked the window with rolled up towels from the fire and smoke.

They called for help and remained on the line until firefighters arrived to rescue them from the bathroom.  Crews say the those rolled up towels under the bathroom door help save their lives.  Two cats were also saved, but two other apartments were damaged from the fire leaving nine people displaced.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
