Police rescue residents from burning home
July 26, 2007 (WLS) -- Two Chicago police officers are being called heroes after making rescues at a burning south side apartment building.
The two officers just happened to patrol the block when they saw smoke coming from the building near 36th Street and Calumet. They quickly ran through the burning building and helped get all the residents out.
"When we got there, there was just a little smoke and then it accelerated. We cleared about three of four houses down and tried to get everybody out as much as we can," said Esnaf Husic Chicago Police Dept.
"Just basically made sure everybody was safe. After all this, it was good that nobody was injured," said Rene Saucedo Chicago Police Department.
The only injury was to an elderly woman. She's expected to be OK.
Investigators are now trying to find the fire's source.
