A newspaper carrier saw a West Valley City home on fire and pounded on the door to alert its homeowner, allowing her to escape unharmed early Tuesday morning.
Matthew Hoagland, 30, says he was just doing his usual deliveries at 5:14 a.m. when he noticed "a bright light" coming from the garage of a customer's home at 4020 W. Dennis Drive (3015 South).
"It was pitch dark, so it stood out. ... When I got closer, come to find out it was a fire," he told The Salt Lake Tribune. "I got on my phone and called 911 while I went up [to the front door] to see if anyone was home."
