Teens & deputies honored

DECATUR -- Five teens were recognized for trying to save a life. They were honored at Thursday's county board meeting.

The teens used bottled water and soda to extinguish a car fire last month. The driver didn't make it, but the teens were able to put out most of the fire which prevented more serious injury to the victim. They say they were just trying to help.

Three sheriff's deputies were also honored after helping track down a driver who hit a toddler and fled the scene.
