PHOENIX (AP) - A group of teens are being hailed as heroes after they helped catch two frightened children and their mother from a two-story burning Phoenix apartment complex.
Authorities say the teens were out for a late night swim Wednesday when a fire began to engulf the complex.
Justin Rose told reporters that he heard a woman yelling from the second story with two children. Rose says after speaking with the woman, they convinced her to toss her 3-year-old son and her 6-year-old daughter. The teens safely caught both, then caught the mom who jumped down.
No injuries were reported. Officials say about half a dozen people weren't able to return to their homes.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
