FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Farmington Hills police officers were quick to rescue the sleeping residents of a burning apartment building Sunday morning.
Body camera footage showed officers arriving at the fire at the Country Glen Condominiums, Fox 2 reported.
“They had to systematically check every apartment because they weren’t getting a lot of answers,” Police Chief Jeff King told WDIV. Officers went to the top floor and knocked on every door to get the occupants to safety.
Officers also rescued a dog inside the burning building after being told the owner was trying to force his way back in after the pet.
“The courage displayed by these police officers and firefighters highlights their professionalism and underscores the dangers they face in the line of duty,” King said.
There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation by the Farmington Hills Fire Department.
