A mother and her 17-year-old son were killed, when fire raced through their home in Rockaway Township, New Jersey.

The teen originally made it out of the burning home with his dad.

But he ran back inside to save his mother after hearing her scream for help.

They were found in an upstairs bedroom.

The father escaped but went into severe shock.

Fire officials say the blaze does not appear suspicious.
