Local Heroes Honored

HORSEHEADS (WENY) -- Horseheads officials honored the local heroes who helped save a man's life last week.

Two police officers, one firefighter and a next door neighbor were recognized Thursday night in their role in saving John Stewart Sr.

Stewart's home at 235 Lee Avenue caught fire last Wednesday and the four people worked together to get him out safely.

Local leaders say their quick and courageous actions were admirable, especially with the danger they faced themselves.
