Today's life-savers say they have a hard time calling themselves heros. Firefighter Greg Borden saved a child's life today.
"We don't feel like we're heroes. It's part of out job," says Borden.
Borden has been putting out fires for 12 years, but says days like today are few and far between. The infants trapped in the back bedroom of a blazing home, were screaming for help. Borden says the children's screams are what saved their lives.
"Luckily the infant was crying a little bit so it was a little bit easier to locate through the smoke," says Borden.
That's when Borden says he found 3-year-old Kamari on the bed, and in only 30 seconds Borden brought her to safety. And right behind Borden was Firefighter David Abdoch.
"I heard the cry of the baby. We started to search the room, we got low - I was able to find the baby in a car seat," says Abdoch.
Car seat and all, Abdoch picked up the 2 month-old baby, and got her out of the smoke filled home. Shortly after that, the third child, was rescued from the men of fire Engine Eleven. Three lives were saved in less than one minute. These men say they were born to serve and protect.
