Boys rescue toddlers from neighbour’s burning home

Two boys have become heroes after risking their lives to save two toddlers trapped inside a burning home.

Isiah Francis (10) and Jeremiah Grimes (11), from Florida, were playing outside when they noticed smoke coming out of a nearby mobile home.

The owner of the house was outside pouring water on the fire when Isiah quickly remembered several small children lived there.

'I was really scared because I thought I was going to get burned'

The young boy, who’s always dreamt of becoming a firefighter, ran into the burning house with his friend.

“I was really scared because I thought I was going to get burned. I was nervous because there was so much smoke it was hard for me to see,” Isiah told Click Orlando.

They found a 1-year-old and an 8-month-old inside a burning room. Bravely, the two boys carried them outside, before calling 911.

Apparently when firefighters arrived, they found a 2-year-old and 5-year-old still trapped in the home.

Despite the tough experience, Francis still wants to be a firefighter.

“Even though I have to go through all this hard work, I still want to be one.” Investigators say the fire was most likely caused by a stove, and they plan to find out why the homeowner did not tend to the children when it started.
