Bryce Ayers and Levi Hill were following some friends to get food, when they came across an upside down car on fire.

"We ran back, the car was on fire, we knew we had to get them out of here or feel guilty for the rest of our lives," said Ayers.

They immediately jumped out and saw two people still inside the car.

"The car was pretty much gone. It was bad," said Hill.

Shortly after, other teammates and friends showed up and started helping any way they could.

"I jump up and see a car flipped over," said Kirk Washington.

"Me and my dad pried open the driver side door," said Brandon Nicholson.

Inside the car were a man and a woman.

Together the group helped pull them out and away from the car.

They also used a water bottle to help keep the fire from getting worse.

The man and woman inside the car were taken to the hospital.

"We were meant to be there to open our eyes, I never wear a seat belt but now it's the first thing I do" Ayers said.

The teens are being called heroes, but they look at it as being in the right place at the right time.

"It could have been anybody out there, but we were and I'm glad we were," Hill said.
