The hashtag #CoryBookerStories was created on Twitter after the Newark mayor saved a female neighbor from a burning building. The tweets are catapulting Booker to Chuck Norriseque Internet folk hero status.
It is a very, very scary thing. And I'd like to say that I, at that point I was feeling so courageous, but honestly, it was terrifying, and to look back, you can see nothing but flames.

At that point I grabbed her, he said in the interview with CBS.
Twitter users are using the hashtag #CoryBookerStories to tell of Booker's superhero efforts in other areas besides saving the woman in the fire.
