Two Dresden Police Officers are credited with saving the lives of two people in a burning home.  Dresden Fire Department Assistant Chief Harold Wolford says officers Brandon Hardesty and Curt Rogers were on patrol and noticed a house on fire at 25 West 6th Street just after 3 a.m.  The two police officers were able to help  William Ripple and his wife from their burning home and then called the fire department.  Assistant Chief Wolford says when his crews arrived they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the roof of the home.  Wolford say fire fighters were able to save a lot of the contents of the home but the home suffered major damage.  Investigators are still looking for the cause of the fire.  No injuries were reported.
