A Boston Police Officer is being recognized for his quick actions that saved multiple lives during a house fire. 

Officer Luis Lopez was the first on scene of a townhouse fire in Dorchester Saturday night.

Lopez, a 12-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, jumped into action. 

"I immediately entered the building and started knocking on doors, kicking doors in, and ordering people to evacuate the building," said Lopez.
