Tallahassee, FL - An unexpected mobile home fire prompts a few good Samaritans driving by to stop and help save a family inside.
The thoughts "I've got to get out, I've got to get out, that's all I could think, I've got to get out of here" rushed through Michelle Biddle's mind when a fire broke out at her home off Highway 20 in Tallahassee just before midnight on Thursday.

According to BJ Gray, one of the 3 men that stopped to help says "I was in the backseat actually and I saw it first and I told them to turn around and we turned around and jumped out of the car and tried to save the people from their house burning down."

Michelle Biddle, Annette Uzoh, her 17 year old son and their 2 dogs were inside the mobile home and were unaware of the fire until Domonick Rellford, BJ Gray and Jacoby Hart started banging on the doors and honking their horn telling them to get out. Jacoby Hart says "it was like really I hope nobody is in there but we're going to check it out and really just hoping that we could get in there and help the people get out of their house before the fire got out of hand." Rellford says he is proud that he was able to be a helping hand for someone else in need and admits "this could have been a different story, this could have went a different way if we would have never stopped."

Biddle says "they are my knight and shining armor, they are amazing, I thank God for them that they were there." Luckily everyone including the animals survived the fire. According to Rellford, the Fire Department arrived shortly after they did and put the fire out. The American Red Cross is currently providing assistance to the family.
