One man's Monday commute quickly turned into a mission to save a woman's life.

Allan Valenzuela says he was driving on I-75 near Shallowford Road when he says he saw a car covered in flames.

Valenzuela told NewsChannel 9 that he was going to drive past it until saw a woman trying to take items out of the burning vehicle.

That's when he pulled over and rushed over to help the woman get her away from the fire.

Valenzuela sent us dash cam video of the incident:

Valenzuela told us what was going through his mind.

"I can't let her do this on her own," he said, "If something happens, it does, but I need to get her away from this car."

Valenzuela says TDOT eventually showed up and helped get the fire under control.

He tells us he is just thankful that he and the woman are okay.
