Brothers heroic rescue of neighbours from burning home

Brothers Joshua (16) and Kyle (21) saved the lives of two people when they broke into a house that was slowly being engulfed by flames.

Taking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Joshua says they were sleeping when their dog started barking non-stop. He went out to find out why the dogs was barking and realised their neighbors house was on fire.

He says there were people standing by watching what was going on. He and his brother jumped in and pulled the cars out of the garage and managed to get access to the back of the house.

They pulled out two people and sustained minor burn wounds in the process. They are both out of the hospital and recovering well.
