Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday honored two University of Pittsburgh students who rescued an elderly neighbor last month from his burning home in Oakland.

Joshua Yoskosky, 21, and Joe Fogiato, 20, rushed into the house on Parkview Street Jan 31 after seeing smoke and flames and helped the man get out. The man was not identified.

Yoskosky, a Belle Vernon native, is majoring in finance and prelaw. Fogiato, of Monongahela, is majoring in marketing and supply chain management.

Council declared Tuesday Joshua Yoskosky and Joe Fogiato Day in the city.
