CLAYTON TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Four Mid-Michigan police officers will be recognized for their bravery after getting three people out of a burning home.

Officers were called to 3510 S. Seymour Road in Genesee County’s Clayton Township at 2:45 a.m. on April 27 for a house fire with people inside.

When they arrived, they could see the attached garage on fire and the flames were moving across the roof.

Unable to wake the three adults inside by banging on windows and doors, the officers kicked in a door and went searching for the people inside.

Despite smoke making for poor visibility, they rescued a 79-year-old man, his 76-year-old wife and their 56-year-old son.

All three were rescued with no major injuries.

Officer Douglas Stone, from Clayton Township Police Department, Officer Robert Adkins, from the Swartz Creek Police Department, Officer Adam Bolf, from the Mundy Township Police Department, and Trooper Nicholas Medina from the Michigan State Police will be recognized for their bravery on May 12 at 7 p.m. during the Clayton Township Hall meeting.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
