An alert delivery driver is being credited for keeping a house fire in Blaine from spreading.
Last month, UPS driver Kevin Aiken was making deliveries when he noticed a burning smell in the air and spotted smoke.
Aiken discovered a home on Woodland Parkway Northeast was on fire and called 911.
The family escaped out the basement door.
Firefighters quickly arrived and the blaze caused only minor damage.
"I have a home, wife and kids," Aiken said. "I'd like to think someone else would do the same thing. I don't know, it just seemed like the right thing to do at the time."
Investigators determined the fire at the home was accidental.
