"I was amazed I wanna bake this guy a cake or something," said Sims.
Officer Paugh was the first emergency responder on the scene Tuesday morning when her neighbor Janie Inman's home caught fire.
The Clarksville Officer kicked in the door and immediately noticed a woman on the floor.
"Her legs were slightly moving so I knew she was alive. At that point we had to get her out as quick as possible," said Paugh.
Firefighters were still on the way so Officer Paugh crawled through the thick smoke alone and pulled Inman to safety.
"If I hadn't done it I'm sure any other officer or first responder who got here before me would've done the same thing I have," said Paugh.
As it turns out, Paugh has a pretty good reason to say that.
Monday several of his fellow Clarksville officers pulled a man to safety through a window in a housefire on Cave Street.
"I'm proud of the officers, the reaction in both circumstances," said Police Chief Al Ansley.
A quick reaction some say saved Inman's life.
Firefighters were able to limit the damage to her home but Sims says they may not have arrived quickly enough to save her.
"The doctors told her daughter if she'd been in that house a few more minutes she'd be dead. There's no way she would have survived," said Sims.

Singer asks forgiveness from Chattanooga in video
June 19, 2013 15:29 GMT
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Musical performer Cee Lo Green is making nice with Chattanooga after his recent Riverbend appearance that drew criticism.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/190vuNs ) reported the singer and rapper says on a video posted on TMZ.com, "Forgive me, Chattanooga."
Riverbend officials have apparently cooled off and made plain they never said Cee Lo was banned from future events, but said they thought they had an agreement to keep the show clean.
Officials said they were disappointed that the artist drank onstage, cursed during his performance and mooned the audience.
In his video, Cee Lo also apologized for the late start to his show, which festival officials said was due to weather delaying his flight.
Said Cee Lo, "I meant no harm."
