Two people have died in a house fire in Homer. Homer Fire Chief Don Happ says the early-morning fire also injured two others. Happ says the two survivors ran from the home screaming ``Get my family out of the house.'' The two were taken to a Springfield hospital for treatment. The victims weren't immediately identified. Chief Happ says the home's occupants had a fire going in a fireplace. He says one victim was found close to the front door and the other close to a bathroom. The Illinois State Fire Marshal was investigating. Firefighters responded from Homer, Ogden-Royal, St.
