ROCKLAND, Mass — Fire officials say a woman would have died in her burning car Monday morning if it hadn't been for the quick actions of a Chelsea fire captain and other bystanders.

Officials said the firefighter, Capt. Edward McGarry, was on his way to work sometime before 7 a.m. when he saw a car on fire in the Route 3 median in Rockland with a woman pinned inside. McGarry and several passers-by pulled the woman from the car just as flames and thick black smoke reached the passenger compartment, officials said.
