(Harvey, IL) -- A couple of children and two women are finally free, as a 20-hour hostage situation has come to an end in Harvey, Illinois. The six and 12-year-old girls and the women were escorted from the home about 15 minutes after police stormed the house. A pair of suspected burglars barricaded themselves in the home yesterday. About 200 officers from nearly two-dozen agencies are on the scene. Surrounding homes have been evacuated with officials telling people to remain inside.
