Saved from Flames

Darrell McCollough is being called a hero. Fire officials in Pasadena, Texas (near Houston) say Murenda Flanagan was trapped on her balcony while her building burned yesterday morning. That's when Darrell, a neighbor, jumped into action. Darrell counldn't hear her screams but he saw the situation. The deaf man drove his jeep underneath the burning balcony and yelled for her to jump. She did and survived with just a leg injury. The building has been declared a loss and will have to be torn down. A dozen families lost their homes in the blaze.
