Mailman helps kids escape burning home

HOUSTON—A neighborhood postman was being hailed as a hero Tuesday night after he helped save two young people from a burning home.

The kids, ages 12 and 14, were asleep inside the Watts family’s home in the 2800 block of Tidewater near West Orem around 9 a.m. when the fire started near an air-conditioning unit.

But right as that happened, the postman, Danny Thompson, happened to be delivering the mail.
