YOUNGTOWN, Ariz. — Officer Frank Becerra is what you might call a hero. In December 2005, he went into a burning house to rescue a family. Then he went back inside, to make sure that everybody was out.
Three adults and four children were saved that day. For his efforts he received commendations from the town, the fire department and the National Latino Peace Officers Association.
