Newspaper carrier saves person from fire while on duty

The Reidsville Review | Greensboro News & Record | WGHP-TV

Steve Bradshaw, a newspaper carrier for Warren Buffett-owned World Media Enterprises, pulled a man from a burning house Sunday, Danielle Battaglia reports in The Reidsville Review. Bradshaw was on duty in Reidsville, N.C., Sunday morning and saw smoke at a house; he "tried to pound on the front door to see if anyone lived there."



Bradshaw -- who said he was a former volunteer firefighter -- pulled a man who was inside the house out through a window. "He was overwhelmed by the smoke," he told Battaglia.



"Had [Bradshaw] not been there the outcome could have been substantially different," Reidsville Fire Marshal Jay Harris told the paper.



Last December, a Roanoke (Va.) Times carrier saved a woman from a fire.
