ELK GROVE (CBS13) – A teacher is alive thanks to the quick work of two Good Samaritans who leaped into action when they saw a car fire in Elk Grove.

Olivia Grover says she was headed to work on Highway 99 when her car burst into flames.

She quickly got out, and just as quickly a man showed up and started to douse the flames. Then another man with a fire extinguisher showed up.

“My adrenaline started pumping, and honestly I don’t remember the car or what she looked like, I just knew I could handle it,” said Keith Buyers, one of the Good Samaritans.

Dispatchers told her they all needed to stay back, but the men continued their fight – keeping the teacher back instead.

The teacher lost a few books she had in her car, but even more Good Samaritans are helping to fill that hole by donating books to replenish her collection.
