A Tulsa postal worker is honored for his quick thinking and bravery.

Greg McElroy was making his rounds about three weeks ago when he saw smoke pouring from a home. He didn't hesitate to help out. McElroy went inside to make sure everyone was out, and then he grabbed a hose and tried to put out the fire until the pros arrived.

Many call him a hero, but McElroy is a bit more humble. "I don't think I did that much, but I'm glad enough that I did what I did."

The Tulsa Fire Department presented McElroy with a Good Samaritan award and the post office honored his good deed too.
