A double amputee escaped a Mesa house fire with the help of a neighbor and DirecTV workers.
Officials say neighbor Topper Johnson saw smoke coming from the disabled veteran's home on Monday evening and flagged down a passing DirecTV vehicle for help.
Johnson says the men were able to break a window and pull the veteran to safety. Fire crews arrived minutes later.
