    LISBON - One bitter cold morning last week, two Canton town employees travelling to work spotted trouble at a home along their route to work. One of the workers saw 3- foot-high flames shooting from the chimney and pulled into the driveway, beeping his horn to wake up anyone inside. After banging on the door he managed to get the elderly residents out of the home to safety. Using the home's fire extinguisher the town employee doused the majority of the fire while waiting for firefighters to arrive. No one was hurt in the incident and damage to the home was minimal.
