Men branded ‘heroes’ after house fire

Graham Chapman and Steve Byrne, of Oatlands Tyres, spotted smoke coming from the house in Mount Street.

They broke into the property and rescued the woman, as firefighters arrived to put out the flames.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated, but the two men have been branded heroes by the fire service.
