Two police officers pull man from burning home

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Quick action by police officers in the City of Buffalo Friday night may have saved a man’s life.

First responders were called to a house on Ericson Avenue just before 6 p.m., where a man was reportedly still inside. Police officers William Rezabek and Patrick Crowley were first once on the scene.

“They showed up on location. There was a report from a neighbor that there was possibly someone inside. They kicked the door in, and found the occupant on the landing inside the doorway. He was unconscious; he was taken to ECMC,” Buffalo Fire Division Chief Michael Biasillo said. “They did a great job, what more can you say? They quite possibly saved a life, so my hat’s off to them.”

The man’s name and condition haven’t been released. Nobody else was injured in the blaze.

The fire started on the second floor and caused around $30,000 in damage.
