Sometimes life does not imitate art. Sometimes it just imitates life.
And we're glad it does.
A few years back, Joseph Chambers, then a Ridley teen and junior volunteer firefighter, made headlines for his heroic actions in helping pull a Philadelphia police officer from his burning police cruiser after it crashed on a Philly street.
It was appropriate. Chambers had a burning desire of his own - to one day be a police officer himself.
A few years later, Chambers has seen that dream come true.
He's not a part-time officer in two Delaware County towns.
