Hero: my battle for fire kids; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: IAN MILLER

A HERO cabbie told yesterday of his battle to save a family caught in an arson blaze at a pub.

Daniel Tewolde was driving past when he heard screams and saw a man trapped upstairs.

Eritrean refugee Daniel, 37, said: "He was holding a little girl in pyjamas.

"Her face and everything was blackened and she was coughing and screaming, `Mummy, Mummy, help, help'.

"There was no one else around - it was 4.15am.

"They were quite high up and the man said he was afraid to drop her so far. I climbed on top of a table, he dropped her and I caught her in my arms.

"A few seconds later he was holding another girl. I caught her and laid her on the ground.

"The mummy came out of the pub and she was hysterical and grabbed them, hugging them.

Two young brothers died in the fire at the Prince of Wales in Stoke Newington, East London, on Sunday. Detectives are hunting the arsonist.
