"I Was Here at the Right Time": LDS Man Saves Woman from Blazing Home

LDS man Matthew Hoagland saved a woman from a devastating house fire after noticing the growing blaze in her garage early Tuesday morning. 

A man delivering newspapers early Tuesday helped rescue a woman from a burning home.

Despite praise from firefighters who responded to the blaze, Matthew Hoagland said he doesn't consider himself a hero.

"I'm just a good Samaritan who did a good deed, I was here at the right time," Hoagland said, returning to the scene of the fire after finishing his delivery route.
