gentleman was close to the door, the smoke and raging fire made it difficult to pull him to safety. >> he wouldn't have made it out on his own. it was really overpowering. we had to walk away from the house two or three times ourselves to catch our breath before we were able to pull him out. >> mr. anderson was taken across the street soot covered, dazed but conscious. firefighterssay there's no question those who ran into the burning home saved his >> obviously things would have been a lot different. at least now he has a shot. >> the men who ran into the home brush off the word hero. they are thankful mr. anderson is alive. >> anybody would do it. it's just lucky i was in the right place at the right time just to save him. >> tonight the victim is in the hospital. the victim told rescuers that he unplugged something, heard a

>> in those three previous accusations, it never ended with a conviction in this case, the victim didn't come forward for a couple of days but prosecutors here in court earlier today believe they have a solid case against this attorney. >> he's no stranger to boston courtrooms as a prosecutor, defense attorney and now again as a defendant. today gary zarola hid behind his own attorney in court while pleading not guilty to raping a woman in boston earlier this month. >> mr. zarola is nothing more than a t this is a case based upon a foundation of lies and we vigorously look forward to our day in court. >> he has faced sexual assault charges before. twice in boston and once in miami. all about a decade ago. in all of those cases, zarola was either found not guilty or the charges were dropped. in this rape case, prosecutors believe there's enough evidence for conviction. >> a very strong case for the government. >> his attorney says the alleged victim met up with zarola after they went to a concert.

two officers shot in the line of duty in east the boston police department and bruins alumni. >> it it's the first time we have seen both officers in public since the attack in october. brandon is live for us in east boston tonight. >> tonight was all about honoring these two brave boston police officers. they were a little overwelmed by all the attention. we didn't get to speak to them but everybody was happy it see
the officers dropped the puck at tonight's hockey game between the boston police department and boston bruins alumni team. it's the first time we have seen them in public since six weeks ago when they were shot multiple times on duty in east boston. >> doing well, you know. a long recovery. i know matt just got out this week and rich was out. but thanksgiving, we have a lot to be thankful for. enjoying thanksgiving with their family. >> santolo and morris responded over the thermostat. they walked into a fire fight. santoro was shot four times. morris two times. they hugged one of the fellow officers who saved their lives. the mayor knows the family from dorchester and said there's a lot to be thankful for tonight. >> last time i saw his brother and dad was in the hospital. they weren't smiling. and tonight, they are smiling and they have a smile on their face. >> boston police scored the first goal but with santolo and

that thing is huge. the flash is believed to be a fire ball which is brighter than a usual meteor. there have been no reports of damage from the fire ball. i hate putting our meteorologists on the spot. but this must be a big meteorite? >> it changes terms once it hits the atmosphere. >> it becomes a meteor hitting the atmosphere. that one just burning up, i would imagine. we'll have to do more research on it. gozar rocket launch. how about that. this smoke is what we are focused on for early tomorrow morning to start off thanksgiving. there's a possibility that it could bring isolated spots of a wintry mix. some slick spots on the roads and possibly the driveways to start off. your better chance to see that happening will be to the northwest of 495 because that line is losing steam as it's traveling in our direction.
moisture, there's no precipitation. upper 20s to near 30 degrees. 34 in boston right now. but i imagine most of us if not all of us will hit that 32-degree mark overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning and in the upper 20s, as well. that's where the concern is. if we do see any precipitation, the temperatures are cold enough to freeze that precipitation upon contact and it could cause for, again, those slick spots. as we make it past 9:00 a.m., i think that concern is n start to warm. just a touch. at least we don't have to worry about the wind tomorrow like we had the last few days. we make it into the low-to-mid 40s for most of us. tomorrow afternoon. and then it isn't until after the sun goes down that we start to see any drizzle, light showers working back into the picture for us, and that sets the stage for an unsettled weekend to continue. even into friday. black friday shoppers getting in line early, you might want that umbrella on stand by.
doesn't fit the bill here. it's very broad brush strokes but at least it gives you an idea of where we might see some of those very isolated spots that could pick up on a quick blast of drizzle. blast isn't the right word to use there, that could be freezing drizzle early tomorrow morning. so just make sure you tune in to today new england and see how things are developing as we are moving through the hours. very cold start but into the afternoon i think midday early afternoon we are dry. football games looking good. no trouble spots for us aside from the unsettled northeast. the really stormy spot will be in the pacific northwest. a lot of wind, rain, and high elevation snow. again unsettled weather heading through the weekend as i mentioned, the system sort of slowly moveing in our direction and weakening. but it could tap into a surface low and bring us some more rain by early sunday, not a lot of rain, though. quarter of an inch to a half inch.
more wet than white. we are really not talking about a white thanksgiving here. here's a look. 7 on 7 forecast while temperatures do stay cool until we hit the beginning of december, believe it or not, it will be dry. sunday, monday, wet weather works back in for tuesday wednesday. have a good night. >> you, too, brie. thanks. a happy homecoming for a little girl from east boston with a debilitating illness. the 10-year-old got to go home just in time for thanksgiving with her family. the bubbles, the whole nine yards. this fall developed a neurological disorder that affected her mobility. but now doctors say she's doing so much beter. she is going home for thanksgiving, which is an incredible blessing for them. >> interpreter: i feel very proud of her. she has been able to overcome all the things that have been happening to her. >> she is beautiful. and paulina will keep going to physical therapy in hopes that
volunteers from the lynn fire department serving up a feast for children in need today. the tradition started 28 years ago originally serving about 80 kids and now has grown to 350. firefighters say it's one of their favorite days of the year. >> there's nothing hard work about this. it's a joy. to see the smile on their face, make sure they have a meal. our children got involved, to see what it is to give back. >> it's a joy to see these kids' faces as they eat g, potatoes, stuffing their faces. most kids come in at 80 pounds and leave at 90 pound because they have eaten so much. >> the firefighters union pays for the event and they hold a charity golf tournament to pay for it each year. that's so cool >> and they are the best cooks. can't beat a fire's cooking. >> absolutely not. >> sports, joe, a couple of injuries to talk about. >> charra is the big one right now. the bruins are in ottawa
how did tom brady celebrate his record-tieing 27th career a.f.c. offensive player of the week award in he didn't spend it partying. hese a knee injury but one that did not and will not keep him out of the jets game on sunday. that's the word. jimmy gropolo the only quarterback on the field who welcomed gronkowsky. the all pro tight end is expected to miss again. it's next man up in foxboro. >> you got to do your job. probably say that a lot, but that's really what it is. whether my job is, you know, to
a look for, you know, or take some reps with the offense, i'm here to do my job. >> we have a heaping helping tomorrow of highlights and scores from eastern and central mass. that's tomorrow thanksgiving day at 5:30 right here on 7nbc. the bruins traveling to ottawa without zadano who is out with a lower body injury. big z. considered doubtful for claude julian is banking on a team effort to fill his super sized skates. >> we will need everybody to step up and you know we just lost our best defender and, you know, the teams hate playing against him and that's the kind of impact he's got. now, you know, there's no individual that will step up and do his job more than we are going to have to do it as a group. >> celtics and nets, marcus
he sets up isaiah thomas. isaiah laying in two of his team high 23. smart gets fancy this time. the know-long diamond transition. the layup and the foul, celtics up by two at halftime. third quarter smart serving up another delicious dish. this time finding zellar for the lay-in. smart four points, eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals. nets never led in this game. in the fourth quarter, bradley caps it off with a hustle play tipping in his own celtics win their third straight 111-92. play of the day. brought to you by capital one. >> college hoops oklahoma state freshman cameron mcgriff is a new comer to the cowboys but watch what he does right here. nasty. elevates and slams down on rodney pryor's head. be thankful you aren't on the business end of our play of the day. and kevin love pouring in an nba record 34 first-quarter
