Dartmouth Detective Pulls Elderly Man from Burning House


On Saturday, April 20, at approximately 5:21 p.m., Dartmouth Police responded to a structure fire with entrapment at #17 Johnson Street.

Upon arrival, Detective Scott Brooks entered the residence, located the elderly male in the lower level of the raised ranch, and safely escorted him out of the house.

The fire, which was contained to a single room on the upper level of the house, was extinguished by the fire department.

Four children, who were also inside of the residence, had safely exited prior to the arrival of emergency responders.

No one was injured as a result of this incident, and the origin of the fire remains under investigation.

According to Dartmouth Chief of Police, Brian P. LEVESQUE, “This incident speaks perfectly as to the dedication of the officers (both uniform and plainclothes) of this department. Even if it means placing their own lives in danger, the top priority of the men and women of the Dartmouth Police Department is to protect and serve the members of the community by any means possible.”
