Pa. officer rescues 3 in house blaze

By Larry King
The Philadelphia Inquirer 
BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. — A muscular police officer broke into a burning Bucks County home early yesterday and helped three residents to escape the flames — one of them draped over his back.

Six people -- including two officers and a firefighter -- were injured, Northampton Township Police Chief Barry Pilla said. One occupant of the house remained hospitalized last night.

The injuries might have been far worse, Pilla said, had not Officer Jack Kenney, 31, broken through the locked front door and raced into the burning home on Buck Hill Drive.
