He wasn't expecting what was coming next. He says he was, "just in the right place at the right time"
Spurling was helping someone with their boat when they noticed another boat was on fire. At first he says it was a small fire.
He says,"Me and my other buddy we grabbed a fire extinguisher out of my boat and we were going to try to get there and put it out but it got fully involved before we could get there."
Spurling and his friend weren't able to put the fire out but they were able to help two passengers off the boat.
They brought the two people in and geared up to bring the boat closer to shore so Crisp County Fire Department could extinguish it.
Although, he potentially saved two lives, he doesn't think it was a remarkable act.
Spurling says, "I think anyone else would've done the same thing I did because if you see somebody that needs help you just got to help them."
Department of Natural Resources says this is an example why you need to keep a fire extinguisher and life jackets while you're on a boat.
Game Warden, Clint Martin says," If you have a fire extinguisher try to use that as the first tactic, if that doesn't work put on a life jacket and get off the boat. No boat is worth dying over, let it burn."
