Theres absolutely no question that their actions saved this familys life, says Pitt Meadows Fire Chief Don Jolley.

He says a family of three were rescued from their burning vehicle by seven or eight bystanders who rushed in.

The familys vehicle had struck a transmission pole and burst into flames on Lougheed Highway, right in front of Meadowtown Centre just after 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Not everybody was helpful in rescuing the two adults and one child, though.

You know, we see the absolute very best in human behaviour, and the absolute very worst, says Jolley.
