Firefighters say three adults live in the home, a husband, wife and their adult daughter.
Before firefighters arrived, officials say the husband helped escort his wife, who uses a wheelchair, out of the home. He then went back into the burning house to try and get his daughter.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, they went inside to rescue the husband and daughter. Officials say by the time they pulled them out of the fire, neither adult had a pulse and they both suffered from smoke inhalation.

"The elderly adult female who exited the home before firefighters' arrival, her husband, the adult male patient, helped get her out, then reportedly went back in the home to get the adult female out," Capt. Daniel Arizpe with the Cy-Fair Fire Department said. "At that time, neighbors and Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies helped roll the wheelchair-bound woman to safety on the sidewalk until firefighters arrived."
Incredible helmet camera video from the fire department gives viewers a good perspective of just how big the fire was.
Fire crews started CPR after the rescue and were miraculously able to revive the father and daughter.
Firefighters say the pair was transported to Memorial Hermann where they are in critical condition.
Neighbors say the husband and wife are in their 60s.

Fire officials do not know the cause of the fire. They believe it started in the garage of the home and spread.
The Harris County Fire Marshal's Office says the fire rescue was extremely dangerous due to the amount of smoke.
