LAWRENCE, Mass. — Ivan Soto’s home was engulfed by flames, but the police officer was too busy helping other residents evacuate after a series of natural gas explosions to worry about his own loss.

After making sure his family was safe, the Lawrence officer rushed back out to help others — and stayed on the job even after his bosses told him to leave.

On Friday, little remained of Soto’s home, one of dozens that were damaged by the fiery blasts in three communities north of Boston that killed a teenager and injured at least 25 others.

The article goes on to state the following:

Blackened debris in the driveway and singed siding on a neighbor’s home spoke to the intensity of the fire.

One of Soto’s daughters was the only person home when the blaze started Thursday. She ran across the street to the home of Christel and James Nazario and was crying hysterically, Christel Nazario said.

“Smoke started pouring out of the basement window,” she said. “The house started smoking and then it was just engulfed in flames.

Soto arrived a short time later and told the Nazario family they had to evacuate because there were gas explosions in the city, the couple said. But then he went back to work, Nazario said.
