Bus driver praised for using fire extinguisher

Somerville, MA – A bus driver has been recognized as a hero after she jumped into action to help save people in a burning home. The driver was returning the bus back to the garage when she came upon the fire burning in a three-family home. She stopped the bus, grabbed the vehicle’s portable fire extinguisher, and ran to the building. She emptied the extinguisher onto the flames, and then knocked on an adjoining door to get people out. The bus driver reported that she was assisted by an unknown male party with trying to help notify residents in the building and with extinguishing the fire.
