GRIDLEY, Calif. - A Gridley hero stepped up and helped rescue an elderly woman from her burning car on Thursday.
Josh Griffith walked to the smoking car he saw at Highway 99 and Ford Street before it broke out into flames.
Griffith found an elderly woman in the passenger seat. She said her husband had walked to a nearby store to use the phone.
At first the woman said that she was fine and insisted her car was just overheating.
Griffith convinced her to get out of the car right before it burst into flames.
The event was captured on the cell phone belonging to Griffith's girlfriend.
