Bus driver commits heroic act

Bus driver Richard Lucas saw a fire on his bus route on South Park and Koester the other day. He got out and banged on the doors and woke up the 10 people living in the two story house.

“I woke up to a guy screaming in the house,” said Juan Huertas, the downstairs resident. “I had no idea who it was, and then I heard my wife screaming, ‘Get out of the house.’ ”

Once everyone was safely outside, Lucas went back to the bus and continued on his route. He doesn't want to speak to the media but the family and the Buffalo Fire Department is proclaiming him to be a hero.
