(Scroll down for video) Two boys in Florida, were hailed as heroes for courageously running into a burning home to save 2 young children.

11-year-old Jeremiah Grimes and 10-year-old Isiah Francis of Orange County, were playing video games when they smelled smoke and noticed that their neighbor’s house was on fire.

The two boys realized that the father of the children was outside trying to find water to put out the fire.

Isaiah and Jeremiah asked the man if there were children inside, and he told them that they were in the kitchen. The boys ran into the house, and rescued an infant and a one and a half-year-old child.

When firefighters arrived, they rescued two other children who were still trapped in the home. Those two children were taken to a hospital and are said to be in critical condition.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
