GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A corporal with the Cascade County sheriff's office
 and a friend helped save a Cascade-area family from a house fire as they returned
 from a day of fishing on the Missouri River.
   The Great Falls Tribune reports Cpl. Jay Groskreutz and Adam Kutzler were on their
 way back to Great Falls Saturday when they spotted flames shotting out of the
 chimney of a house off Old U.S. Highway 91 outside of Cascade.
   The men knocked on the door and a young boy answered, followed by his mom and
 sister. They did not know the house was on fire.
   Groskreutz contact dispatchers and Kutzler hooked up a garden hose. Groskreutz
 then hopped up on the roof to spray water on the chimney until firefighters
arrived.
   No one was hurt.
