RAYMOND, N.H. — A Raymond police officer is being called a lifesaver after he rescued a man from a burning home.

Officer James Tomilson was driving down a narrow, winding road Saturday night, investigating possible illegal fireworks on Governor's Lake, when he saw flames shooting from a cottage.

He ran into the burning building and found John Rosa, 44, who had been asleep. Tomilson and Rosa headed to an upper deck area, where the officer helped the man to safety.

The officer will be honored by the department. He said he was just doing his job.
