Early Sunday morning, Officer Jacob Moore of the Buena Vista (VA) Police Department ran into the burning home of Thomas and Lovie Atkinson to save them and their dog from the flames.
He was able to get them out before anyone was hurt. Police Lt. Randy Chittum also arrived to assist in blocking off the area, reports WSLS.
The two said it's their job to go above and beyond to save anyone in harm's way.
No one was injured in the fire.
