CHICAGO — Chicago Police Officer Brian Baader didn't think twice about making his way into a fiery, smoky Far South Side home where a 60-year-old woman was trapped this morning (Dec. 16).

After he arrived at the scene of the blaze in the 10400 block of South King Drive about 6:50 a.m. and flames shot from a front window and engulfed a Christmas tree, a resident told the 33-year-old Calumet District patrolman her mother was still inside.
