The video above was taken by a neighbor as the first firefighters arrived at a house fire in Georgetown, Ohio on Sunday. Before the camera was rolling four teenagers had entered the house and pulled a badly burned man to safety.
Josh Fields, 18, Travis Gilreath, 18, Timothy Barrett, 16, and Tyler Gilbert, 16, were driving home from swimming when they saw a house on fire and heard someone calling for someone else to get out of the home.
When no one came out of the house, the teens jumped from the car and ran into the home.
According to the TV station, about 20 minutes before this rescue Josh Fields had saved Travis Gilreath from drowning while they were swimming at a local dam. That scare caused the teens to ditch their swimming outing and head home early, putting them on the path to make the second rescue.
