The upstate New York cop celebrated a hero after saving the family from the burning house


A police officer was hailed for his heroic deeds after he stormed into a flaming house in upstate New York on Monday and rescued a trapped family, police said.

Officer Mark Conklin was made aware of a possible house fire in Jamestown, about 70 miles southwest of Buffalo. He ran to the scene and found at least five inmates in the building, the Jamestown Police Department told Eries WJET-TV.

WJET-TV reported that Conklin had used his radio to call the Jamestown Fire Department for help before helping to get three people off the first floor. Then he turned his attention to the other inmates – a mother and child – and got them to jump out of an upper window, police said.

Bodycam footage released by the Jamestown Police Department shows the building on fire when cop Conklin arrived at the scene.
