OTTAWA - A former Ottawa Rough Rider got two seniors out of their burning home Sunday morning.

Bruce Walker, an award-winning Rider wide receiver from 1979 to 1985, was heading to work at the Ottawa Athletic Club around 8:30 a.m. when he thought he saw a lot of smoke coming from a home at 1534 Weyburn St.

He stopped, turned around and saw there was an SUV in the carport which was already fully aflame.
