Md. officer saves 9 from fire

The Washington Times

A Montgomery County police officer is being credited with saving a family of nine from a town house fire in Poolesville early yesterday.

Officer John Binnix was driving by the Meadow Valley complex at 3:45 a.m. when he saw flames on the roof of a two-story town house in the 19500 block of Fisher Avenue. He stopped, ran up to the home and banged on the door.

"He was driving by and saw the smoke. He decided, 'Wait. Maybe I should be sure it's safe,' " said Becky Stream, 17, who lives nearby.
