The work day began early for three St. Louis, Mo. firefighters Saturday.
According to FOX2 in St. Louis, three St. Louis firefighters were all headed to work — and all from different directions — when they came upon a car that had crashed into a stoplight pole and caught fire.
FOX2 reports three people were stuck in the car — two of whom were on fire. Without their equipment, the three firefighters stopped to rescue them.
They, along with the help of bystanders at the scene, managed to rescue the victims by using objects such as bricks and car jacks to break out the windows of the car. One used his jacket to put out the flames on one of the victims.
The three firefighters were identified as Frank Carter, Licole McKinney and Vincent Smith, according to FOX2.
The three victims were later taken to local hospitals. One female victim is in critical condition, while the conditions of the other two are unknown.
