A new video submitted to ABC 6 News shows firefighters rescuing two boys who were trapped inside of a burning home in Pawtucket, as flames burst out of the windows Wednesday morning. The fire happened at about 9 a.m. on Ballston Avenue. A witness told ABC 6 News that two boys had been sleeping on the third floor of the home along with their grandmother when the fire broke out. The grandmother helped the two boys escape out of the window, but she was trapped inside for about 40 minutes before firefighters were able to cut a hole in the roof to rescue her.
