Here's some pretty dramatic footage of a police officer running into a burning building, searching through an outdoor hallway with his flashlight as flames shot out of windows, and running out of the building with a little girl that he saved. This is a guy who went to work last night, was presented with a problem, and solved it. Thank you, Detective McVicker, and the rest of you. You are appreciated.
