The Bulletin notes.

Officer Kevin O'Connor of the Ottawa, Illinois, Police Department was the first officer to respond to a report of a fire at an apartment complex. Upon his arrival, Officer O'Connor was advised by tenants that they could not make contact with one of the residents. Officer O'Connor immediately went to the apartment, where he observed thick black smoke coming from under the entrance. Upon forcing open the door and calling inside, he heard someone screaming from the apartment. After entering three times and receiving minor burns, Officer O'Connor was able to locate the victim and pull him to safety. The man then received immediate medical help and later recovered from his extensive injuries. The heroic actions of Officer O'Connor prevented this man's death.
