As officer Jeremy Wallace arrived at the home on West Powell Street late Thursday night he saw heavy smoke and flames shooting into the air.

Wallace, a patrol officer with the Dothan Police Department, responded to an emergency dispatch call of a fire at a home that possibly had two people inside, including a blind woman who was also an amputee. Wallace was the first of emergency personnel on the scene of the fire.

“I just felt like I needed to get in there and get these people out,” Wallace said. “I could hear them screaming. I just did what I thought was right.”
