VIDEO: A North Kingstown police officer went above and beyond when he saved a woman in a wheelchair from her burning home. The chief of North Kingstown police is calling Sgt. Tim Daly's actions "brave and heroic." The call was for a brush fire, but when Daly arrived at the scene things were much more serious. Daly's body-worn camera captured him jumping to action Tuesday as he responded to a house fire on Fletcher Road. "Someone is in the house guys," Daly says on the video. Screams are heard coming from a smoke-filled room. "I can't move," a woman yells. Inside, a woman in a wheelchair was unable to escape. Daly raced to rescue the victim before firefighters arrived. Other officers also rushed to help get her to safety. They said they could hear explosions coming from the home.
