The Asbury Park Press reports Point Pleasant Beach Patrolman Kyle Boturla responded to Eugene Berger’s home around 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, after one of Berger’s neighbors reported a possible fire.

Boturla saw flames shooting from Berger’s home and forced open a back door. He soon found the 78-year-old man and pulled him from the home.

Boturla and Patrolman Chris Mosca then gave first aid to Berger, who suffered smoke inhalation and second-degree burns to his hands. Berger was being treated at a hospital, but further details on his condition were not disclosed.

Berger was alone at the time of the fire. The two officers were not hurt.
