TWO LOCAL men have been hailed as heroes after playing their part in the rescue of a Chord Road woman from her burning home.

Colin Carter fought through the blaze to get Mrs Eva Berrill, right, who is in a wheelchair and in her seventies, out of the room in which she was sleeping.

A second man, Brian Reynolds, also crawled into the house amid smoke and flames and kicked open a closed door in the frantic rescue attempt.
