Fire res­cue is one for the books

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A writer dashed past fire­fight­ers into this burn­ing New Or­leans house to res­cue two com­pleted nov­els stored on his lap­top. Gideon Hodge, 35, told The New Or­leans Ad­vo­cate in the US, why he made the fire dash. He said: “Any­body that’s ever cre­ated art, there’s no re­plac­ing that. It’s got pretty much my life’s work.” The fire spread to the house where Hodge lived from an empty house next door, where fire­fight­ers be­lieve it started.
