Officers help elderly couple to safety as fire ravages California home
CALIFORNIA - Officers with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office in California worked together to rescue an elderly couple whose home was burning in mid December, recently-released video shows.
According to the sheriff’s office, the officers were worried that an elderly couple living may have been trapped in a house fire on December 18.
They found an elderly woman in a wheelchair outside the front of the building and helped her to get a safe distance before returning to find her husband “disoriented” in the back yard.
One side of the home was burning and the other blocked off by a fence, meaning the man had no way to escape. The bodycam footage shows the officers ripping down the wooden fence before leading the man to safety.
