Officers and firefighters rescued 15 students trapped in a massive house fire in Lansing, MI, Monday morning.

All 15 students are fine and are being assisted by the Red Cross. They were all from China and are flying back home Monday and Tuesday. Their personal items were already packed for their trip so they didn't lose anything in the fire.

At 1:22 a.m. police were the first ones to the home, which was being used as an Airbnb rental where 15 international students were staying while they attended a medical conference at Michigan State University.

When officers arrived just after 1:20 a.m. only 5 of the students renting the home were outside. Officers say the other 10 students were trapped in the house. Police were able to get inside and help everyone get out safely.
