YORBA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say four people were injured in a Southern California house fire including two deputies and a 90-year-old woman they tried to rescue.

The Orange County Register reports the two deputies were first to respond to the Tuesday fire in Yorba Linda.

County fire Capt. Steve Concialdi (cahn-see-AHL'-dee) says the deputies and the woman's 56-year-old son tried twice to make it to an upstairs bedroom to rescue the woman but couldn't make it through the heat and thick smoke.

When firefighters arrived, they rescued the woman, who was in full cardiac arrest but was resuscitated. She was taken in critical condition to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where she was breathing and had a pulse.

The son and deputies were hospitalized for minor smoke inhalation.
