"Had she not been able to make that 911 call, it's very uncertain what would've happened," Sgt. Rich Long of the Gwinnett County Police told WXIA.

Investigators found that the gas line in the home had been cut and believe the brothers had planned to burn the house down. The two now face charges of aggravated assault and arson.

"A good kid, definitely a good kid. That's the last thing I would expect out of those kids," neighbor Clinton Miller told WGCL.

The father and mother are recovering from their injuries. The brothers are scheduled to appear in court Friday.
