CHELSEA, Mich. (AP) — The mother of four children was severely burned while rescuing her kids from a fire at their home, authorities said.

Mikala Vish repeatedly went back into her Chelsea home to save the children Tuesday, firefighters said.

“The most heroic thing I’ve ever seen,” Lt. Derek Klink told WDIV-TV. ”Mikala deserves all of the credit.”

Vish is in a hospital with burns on more than 60% of her body and has a “very long road ahead of her,” the fire department said on Facebook.

A 6-year-old son also was badly burned.

“The family has lost everything in the fire and is desperate need of help,” the fire department said.
