Rescue from burning car

Officers, citizens pull 3 from car fire
Witnesses and police officers pulled three men from a burning car after a crash involving a semi-truck.

I'd just like to give a big thanks to all you LEO's who are out there and doing a great job, even when it means putting your lives and/or well being in jeopardy, probably without even thinking about it, just doing what you have to do.

This is a good example of the good that can come from police and citizens working together.

Damn. Definitely great jobs by one and all!

I know with car fires, always present is the thought of when the gas tank's going to explode.

For those who haven't click on the link it shows dash cam footage from an officers patrol car.
A very dangerous situation, but a job well done!

One of our guys was off duty on his way to his part time job and pulled a lady from a burning car. He ended up getting a written reprimand for being late for work.
