Two Chicago PD officers risk their lives to help evacuate residents of an apartment building which caught fire.
Two alert Chicago police officers prevented a tragedy early Monday morning when they spied smoke and flames in the Pilsen neighborhood and helped dozens of residents vacate three buildings that eventually were consumed by fire, officials said.
“They risk[ed] their own lives to save them,” said Monroe District Lt. Deborah Izzo, referring to officers Laura Agin and Michael Daliege who saw the fire in the 1500 block of West 18th Street shortly before 1:40 a.m. and immediately ran into one of the buildings and began rousing residents.
Congratulations to Laura Agin and Michael Daliege – it takes an extremely brave (and possibly crazy) person to run into a burning building, but these two officers are a credit to their uniform and police across the nation. I guess it’s a good thing that those “Only Ones” were on hand – because it looks like cops were the only ones risking their lives to help evacuate residents in that fire.
