“When our safety officer got on the scene it was fully involved,” said Manor Borough Fire Department Captain Brandon Stepanik.
To escape, the teenagers opened a window and jumped out into trees. A neighbor went into the home to rescue the younger kid, who was apparently in the basement.
“I just wanna give him a big hug and thank him for doing what he did for my grandkids,” said grandmother Deborah Woods.

“I’m happy that they’re ok, but I’m sad that they lost everything again,” said Woods.
