ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Broadway Fire Department said their firefighters view two young men as heroes after a rescue on Thursday.

Firefighters said when they arrived at a routine care fire, they learned two teenagers had risked their lives by pulling a man away from the burning car.

The agency shared a post from one of the teens' mother, who said an older neighbor was working on his car when it caught fire. She said the man was trying to get a hose to put the fire out when he fell.

The teens heard the man's cry for help and jumped the fence, calling 911 and dragging him away from the fire.

The man has since been released from the hospital where he was receiving treatment.
