Officer Joseph Lanzisera responded to the call. He broke through the side window, climbed into the apartment and dragged the woman to safety, with the help of Huntington Fire Chief Ken Cochrane.The 84-year-old woman lives alone in a Huntington apartment complex and uses an oxygen tank, which officials believe caused the fire.
