Massachusetts State Police Trooper races into burning house to rescue occupants

image_pdfimage_print

“Shortly before midnight, one of our members, Trooper Skerritt from the H-9 Tunnels Barracks, was commuting home through Dorchester.

As he drove down Gallivan Boulevard he noticed a thick haze and rolled down his windows, immediately smelling smoke. Following the smoke, Trooper Skerritt located a house with heavy smoke and fire on Codman Hill Ave.

He immediately jumped into action while radioing for assistance. Trooper Skerritt, with assistance from a neighbor, helped two of the occupants of the house escape the blaze with only minor injuries.

The actions of Trooper Skerritt undoubtedly are heroic and a prime example of what it means to be a Massachusetts State Trooper.” -State Police Association of Massachusetts.
