Watercooler talk
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Police in Poland say an 8-year-old boy saved his sister and three drunk adults from a fire by calling police and fighting the flames before help arrived. The fire started outside the door of the boy’s apartment in the western town of Miedzyrzecz late Monday.

Police said Tuesday that the boy was unable to wake up his mother or two men — all of whom were intoxicated — so called the emergency number himself.

He helped his 5-year-old sister get dressed and repeatedly poured water on the burning door as he waited for help.

Police spokesman Artur Chorazy said: “If it wasn’t for him, there might have been a tragedy.” Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
