On Sunday May 10, off-duty Lubbock, TX, police officer J.R. Wood, was returning home from working security at his church when he saw his neighbor’s house on fire, according to a post on the agency's Facebook page.

According to the post, a person who was standing outside told Officer Wood that 911 was already called, but their elderly neighbor was still inside the burning home.

Wood immediately ran inside to find her and bring her out to safety, the post said.
