2 metro Atlanta nurses on lunch break jump in to put out car fire

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — Two metro Atlanta ER nurses proved they are superheroes both inside and outside of the hospital.

Rebecca Martin said she two fellow nurses who work in the emergency room at Henry Piedmont Hospital were at lunch at a Taco Mac in Henry County.


As they were waiting in the lobby, they saw a truck catch on fire at the Racetrac gas station across the street.

Martin called 911 while two other nurses, Justin Keeton and Justin Connelly, grabbed a fire extinguisher from the restaurant, ran across the street and put the fire out before the fire department even got to the scene.

Keeton and Connelly were able to save the man’s work truck, Martin said.

Thanks to nurses for all you do!
