BROOKLYN - Officer Rosa Rodriguez continues to fight for her life at the Cornell Medical Center's burn unit after being injured in a Coney Island building fire.

Hospital officials say she's in critical but stable condition.

Rodriguez and her partner, Dennis Guerra, rushed to the 13th floor of a Surf Avenue building fire Sunday trying to help those inside.

Guerra succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning and the effects of smoke inhalation today.  

Marcell Dockery, who lives in the Surf Avenue building, has been arrested in connection to the fire. He's charged with arson, assault and reckless endangerment. There is no word on if those charges will be upgraded.
