Luther, Okla. — A trash collector arrived just in the nick of time to help save a family in Luther, Okla. Upon seeing a rural home engulfed in flames, the hauler entered the home to alert the sleeping family, investigators said. According to local TV station KOCO, "The side room was blazing" by that time. The home owner didn't have time to do anything except get out. Although the home was destroyed, the family was saved and will be staying with neighbors.
