AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Two Aiken County residents made it out of a burning house safely thanks to two deputies. 

Deputies Kenneth Lively and Nicholas Lott responded to a house fire in the 2300 block of Piper Road around 4 a.m. Friday, according to the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. They arrived before the fire department. 

Lively and Lott said they could hear people inside the home calling for a family pet and coughing. The home was full of heavy black smoke. 

The deputies entered the house, where they found both homeowners on the second floor. They were able to lead them out of the house before they succumbed to the smoke. 

The homeowners were treated for smoke inhalation. 

Aiken County Sheriff Michael Hunt is recognizing Lively and Lott for their life-saving actions. 

"Throughout my career in public safety, I have seen law enforcement officers, like Lively and Lott, continue to set an example of service to citizens by risking their lives to help save others<" Hunt wrote in a statement. "I commend these officers for their service to the citizens of Aiken County."
