According to Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) paramedic Al Moore, 52, a member of the public was on his way to work when he saw the car on fire.
The NARS volunteer, from Sculthorpe, said: "He was in so quickly he stopped it being much more serious. He dragged out the driver and a young lad and they were both taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn. It was a heroic act, plain and simple."
One of the casualties was airlifted to hospital by the East England Air Ambulance.
Fire crews from Wells, Hunstanton and Fakenham arrived on the A149 near Holkham at around 5.20pm, and used hose reel jets to extinguish a car fire.
