BAY SHORE - Two teens are credited with saving two boys from the second floor of a burning home in Bay Shore on Friday.

The fire broke out at a home on Wisconsin Avenue. Daniel Ortiz, 17, and his 14-year-old brother David saw the flames and heard kids screaming for help.

Ortiz says he knew what had to be done so he grabbed a ladder, propped it up against the burning house and rescued 12-year-old Ryan Bosque and his 3-year-old brother Jayden.

Police say an officer also ran into the home and helped evacuate people on the first floor of the home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
