Cop Smashes Through Glass Door To Rescue Dog From A House “Engulfed In Flames”

Deputy Jekovich was responding to a house fire when he heard, “scratching from behind the front door.”  Knowing that no residents were inside the home at the time of the fire, the law enforcement officer instinctively knew it was the family dog.

The house was “engulfed in flames,” so Jakovich quickly launched into action and broke the glass door using a batton. He had to coax the pet with a few encouraging remarks, but eventually the pooch ran out of the house toward safety.

The dog experienced no serious injuries but was shaken up by the scary experience, and was very happy to be reunited with its relieved owners.

The amazing rescue was captured on the officer’s body camera and was shared by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office on their Facebook page
