"It was just thick black smoke coming out of the window," says Tyree Scribener.
It was a sudden scream from the side of the home that alerted them to a dangling arm from a bedroom window. The pair jumped a small fence and pulled Karen May Schultz out to safety. The flames and smoke proved to be too much for Karen's husband Lloyd Schultz. Firefighters found the Kroger deli worker dead in a hallway.
"He had a very great personality," says Karen Dunlap.
Dunlap is the Manager of the Spring Hill Goodwill where Karen is the lead cashier and office assistant.
"Her first name is Karen but we call her LeAnne," says Dunlap.
According to Dunlap, the Schultz' had been married just over a year.
"They were such a sweet couple and he was just so loving with her," says Dunlap. "They just matched, you know?"
Meanwhile, Jackson and Scribner said they couldn't sleep all night thinking about the woman they rescued.
"We were just in the right place at the right time," says Scribener.
They're very reluctant to take the title "Heroes".
"I would want someone to help me if I was back there," says Scribener.
The Goodwill in Spring Hill, as well as the Kroger on Nashville Highway in Columbia are collecting money to help with funeral expenses. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but officers say they did find a number of space heaters inside the home.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
