(POCATELLO, ID)  — A quick thinking driver saved a Pocatello home from burning down Wednesday afternoon.  Officials say Doug Johnson, a local insurance agent, was driving down the 1400 block of Monte Vista Drive when he saw a bush on fire in front of a home. Johnson grabbed a garden hose as the flames spread to the eaves of the house and managed to get the fire under control by climbing on the roof and continuing to douse the flames before fire crews arrived.  Six people were able to safely evacuate the home. An investigation is ongoing.
