Sitter Saves 7 Kids From Burning Van

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (AP) -- A northwest Iowa baby sitter has saved seven children from a van that erupted into flames.
   The Sioux County Sheriff's Office says the incident occurred about 3:30 p.m. Friday about six miles southwest of Sioux Center.
   Thirty-six-year-old Tara Dekkers was driving the 15-passenger van when she heard a sound like a backfire. She soon pulled over the van when it filled with smoke.
   Dekkers quickly unloaded the children, who ranged in age from 1 to 7, before the van was engulfed. No injuries were reported.
   The Sheriff's Office says a mechanical failure caused the fire.
