Actor Keith Carradine turned hero yesterday (12OCT04) when he put his firefighting skills to the test to prevent a house blaze.

The NASHVILLE star, who plays a firefighter in new TV sitcom COMPLETE Savages, was visiting a friend in Beverly Hills, California, when he smelled smoke and heard a neighbour's alarm.

Carradine - brother of KILL BILL star DAVID CARRADINE - jumped into action and entered the vacant apartment, where he saw a blazing rug that had been left atop a heater.
