Two boys rescue children from burning home in Florida
OAKLAND, Fla. - Two grade school boys who rescued a toddler and a baby from a fire say they didn't think twice about going into a burning home.
Ten-year-old Isiah Francis and 11-year-old Jeremiah Grimes say they were watching YouTube and playing video games Tuesday when they smelled smoke coming from the home of Jeremiah's neighbors.
Isiah said Wednesday that he ran next door first and found the children's father outside, searching for water to extinguish the flames.
Isiah ran into the mobile home and found the children in the kitchen with the help of Jeremiah.
He says he scooped up the children and gave one to Jeremiah, and they ran out of the house.
Two other children, ages 2 and 5, also in the home were rescued by firefighters who arrived after Jeremiah called 911.
