Hudson said he was just doing his job that day last November when he raced to the door of a burning house and pulled a man to safety.

"It was like a job to me. It wasn't nothing like a hero thing going on. It was just, (it) seemed like, at the time, something I was supposed to do," said Hudson

Hudson saved the man from a house fire while on his early morning delivery route.

After pulling the man to safety, Hudson went to finish his route.
