morning. There was an apartment fire in Nashville one day last week, and a man broke through a police barrier, leapt over a balcony and broke the sliding glass door to save his dog. He was arrested on misdemeanor charges (I can't remember exactly what the charges were). I can't say I wouldn't have done, or at least tried to do the same thing. He's gotten much community support, but the fire dept. said they couldn't let him get by with putting himself and possibly others in danger, as it could have caused a backdraft or explosion. Still, I think it was a risk he had to take.
