    ROGERS, Ark. (KTHV) -- A policeman in Rogers is being called a hero after he entered a burning home and saved a woman's life.

    Kattie Edwards left her home Thursday to apply for a job, but when she returned, she found the home in flames and her 76-year-old grandmother, Betty Edwards, was still inside.

    Rogers police said Officer Wenseng Xiong was the first to arrive on scene.

    Betty Edwards has been hospitalized for smoke inhalation but is expected to make a full recovery. The family said they're thankful for Officer Xiong.
