Boys...hot dogs...camper....burns.

That string of words is about as hooiser as you can get.

Practicing for their adult catch phrase of "hey y'all, watch this!"

At least I know now what kind of sound the fire made. Good thing they included that.

The fire went whoof. Got it.

Hope those boys heal. I think they learned a valuable lesson about fire - beyond what noise it makes, of course.

Ironically enough, one of the kid's mom was on the news this morning and the kid's name is Blaze.

Yet another example of redneck parents not doing their job. Their fat lazy mom was probably too busy smoking and watching tv to prepare the kids a good meal. What a shame.

Cooking hot dogs at 5AM? I'm with Watley, I think it was a meth lab. The article never did say the boys ages.

You people are PATHETIC. Dogging on KIDS here. These kids were doing nothing but STAYING OUT OF TROUBLE, you morons.

They were "camping out" in an old beat up camper, you jerks. They were NOT doing drugs, they were NOT doing anything wrong, but trying to eat. There are teenage boys for pete's sake. Maybe it has been too long for you to realize that teenage boys eat ALL THE TIME, or perhaps it is because you people always had your MOMMY or the MAID to wait on you hand and foot. Who knows. Who cares.

The fact remains that these boys were doing nothing wrong, yet you poor excuse for examples as adults are here trashing on them.

Real classy, folks. Real classy.

Apparently your children are watched 24/7 and never have accidents or bad luck, right? Yeah, wait a minute, that's right...THEY ARE YOUR KIDS, they are perfect like you!

Grow up. Stop dogging on kids you don't even know. If this were your kid, you would want the whole world to stop until your kid was better. Show some respect.

These kids come from good families who are at a terrible point in their lives. Have the decency to hope that they get better.

Above all else, know that both of those families would be praying for your kids if the shoe were on the other foot. Although they don't know you, rest assured that they have THE COMMON DECENCY to have compassion and consideration for other people's kids.

Shame on all of you!

I'm not sure who you are, but you are right, they are good kids and they do have great parents. The kids were not doing drugs. They were being normal teenagers staying up all night and having an unusual breakfast, but how many of us haven't done that sometime in our lives. I feel sorry for these people that don't have lives beyond their computer. There actually are fun things to do outside. These people need to try it.

Couldn't agree with you more! I hope the families do not see these comments on here. These boys were doing nothing wrong. They didn't shoot any officers, steal anything, pull guns on anyone, harm children like half the other idiots in the news. Have you bothered to stop and think about the pain these young boys are going through daily as burn victims?????? Do you have any idea what recovery is like for them? Maybe in your spare time (since you seem to be so bored commenting on here) you should look up burn recovery.

And you can go ahead and slam me here for this comment, I would expect nothing less from you!!

I will continue to pray for these boys and their families during their long road to recovery.

You don't know how to live, and you certainly don't know how to let live.
