Boy saves drunken mother from blaze

An eight-year-old Polish boy has saved his sister and three drunken 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 on Monday.

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