ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — Five Cypress police officers are being called heroes after they rescued an 84-year-old woman from a burning house. The men will be honored for their bravery at tonight's City Council meeting.
"I think the officers were just wonderful," said 84-year-old Eleanor Jensen, who is living in a hotel with her 16-year-old dog, Sarah Jane, after the Nov. 25 fire destroyed her home.
