ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - What started out as a friendly competition inside a Roanoke fire station, has now captured the attention of more than a million people.

Two young brothers from South Carolina were visiting Roanoke with their parents when they stopped by the fire station and asked for a tour.

After the tour, one firefighter challenged the boys to a race to see who could get all their fire gear on the fastest.

The two little boys came out victorious.

The whole thing was caught on video, and has now gone viral with more than 1.2 million views.

The Roanoke firefighters are planning to have the boys back over to the station for dinner the next time they pass through the area.
