Off-duty North Glengarry firefighter Tristan Shannon rescued two people from a burning vehicle January 25 on Highway 417 near Vars.

Two people were struggling to get out of the car when he arrived on the scene.

After he helped them out of the burning vehicle, he dialed 9-1-1.

"Without the training I received as a firefighter, I wouldn't have known how fast the situation could escalate," he says.
