Firefighters are commending the brave neighbors who injured themselves while trying to rescue a mother and two children trapped in a burning apartment in San Jose on Story Road, reports

The children jumped out of a window and are now hospitalized. This was a dangerous fire and may have been much worse without the help of some Good Samaritans.

Firefighters said just after 8 a.m., flames and smoke in the kitchen forced the boy and girl, believed to be between the ages of 10 and 13 to take extreme measures. They jumped about 15 feet down to the ground. They had serious burns and possible broken bones or other injuries. They were taken to the burn unit at Valley Medical Center.
