When they arrived at the residence in the 700 block of Commonwealth Avenue NE, they could see the back of the home was engulfed in flames, Wood said.
One of the officers notified dispatch shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday, according to a police report. The officers went inside the home and led four people, who were unaware of the burning exterior, and their three dogs to safety.

“It went from a standard medical call to next thing we discovered a house was on fire,” Wood said. ” ... It was concerning just because we didn’t know to what extent the fire had reached at that point. As we went upstairs there was smoke beginning to fill.”

The entire rescue was recorded by an officer wearing a body camera.
