    Foster Dad dies in fire after saving 9 children


    This man was a hero.

    The fire started as strong and damaging storms blew through East Texas early Saturday morning. Burnett said investigators aren’t sure if the fire was started by a lightning strike or by down power lines, but did say it was weather related.

    Burnett said Max Heinen, 67, was able to get all nine children ranging in age from 3 to 16-years-old out of the home. After Heinen sent the kids to a neighbor’s house to call for help, Burnett said he went back into the home to try and fight the fire.
