on Law Enforcement

A police officer rescued a couple from this burning home. He went back in for the dog.

Officer Jacob Moore stepped into the Buena Vista, Va., police station one morning last week and heard an alert that a house was on fire. It was on the street where he lived.

He got into his squad car and dashed over. Flames were leaping off the house of a retired couple he knew — which was four houses away from his own home.

He went in the front door and saw one of the homeowners, Lovie Atkinson, standing in the kitchen as it quickly filled with smoke.

“She didn’t know what was truly going on,” said Moore, 28, who has been a Buena Vista officer for two years. “She was standing there screaming for her dog. She didn’t want to leave her dog. She was screaming, Zoey! Zoey! Zoey!”

The rest was captured by his body camera: Atkinson ran back into the house and went upstairs, yelling for Zoey, who began to bark.
