Archie to the rescue again.

A Plean fire hero proved to be a'Good Samaritan'for a second time , the Observer reported.

We told on a 'looking back'page earlier this year how coalman Mr Archie Millar, 3 Beech Avenue, was in early 1959 making a delivery to a house in Queen Street, Stirling, when he found the property to be on fire.

Brave Archie entered the house and carried to safety an invalid woman who was living there.

A few weeks later, in 1959, Archie and a pal were vising the latter's home and when the pair got inside they found a piece of coal had fallen from the fire and set carpet and chair alight.

The Observer said:"The coalman promptly tackled the outbreak which if it had gone undetected much longer would have had serious consequences."

Archie, 36, was employed by Messrs Andrew Campbell, coal merchants, Stirling.
