Two Fayetteville, GA, police officers are being hailed as heroes after rescuing the driver and passenger from a burning car.

Officers Michael Perry and Officer Maggie Murphy were the two officers on the scene of that car fire early Sunday morning, Fox 5 reports.

Fayetteville police said the car left the roadway and crashed into a tree, bursting into flames. An off-duty officer called 911.

Bodycam video of the incident shows the car fully engulfed in flames as the officers struggle to pull the passenger out. The driver had managed to get out of the car by then. Once free of the car and the intense heat, the video that that crash shows the victim’s clothes are on fire. Officer Perry is credited with extinguishing the passengers burning clothes.
