    Quincy police officer Michael Cirrincione felt helpless early Wednesday morning while responding to a fire at 515 S. 17th. Cirrincione was one of four officers who were the first on the scene. He helped kick out a basement window that led to Haley Houge, 22, being saved from the blaze. She told officers that two others, her 4-month-old son and her fiance, were still in the house. "They were so far, but so close to getting out," Cirrincione said. "It was a matter of a few feet."
