REIDSVILLE, N.C. — Authorities said a newspaper carrier saved a Reidsville man from a house fire on Sunday morning.

Reidsville Fire Marshal Jay Harris told the Greensboro News & Record that it happened around 5:20 a.m. at 719 N.W. Market St.

The paper reported that Steve Bradshaw helped pull an occupant from a window after he saw smoke coming from the home and couldn’t get in through the front.

There was no report on the man’s injuries. Firefighters said there were no other occupants inside.

Officials said if Bradshaw had not been there, the outcome of the situation would have been much different.

Authorities said the fire started near the rear porch and caused extensive damage. They said the cause remains under investigation.
