Police officers honored for saving people from burning home

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Four police officers from different agencies are sharing a title, hero.

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 were honored Thursday night in Genesee County’s Clayton Township.

In April they rescued three people from a burning home.

When the officers arrived they found an attached garage on fire and flames 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 the smoke, they rescued a 79-year-old man, his 76-year-old wife and their 56-year-old son.

Officer Douglas Stone said everything just came together. “It’s just something we do every day, just everything worked out that ever body was able to come together and save the people.”

All three were rescued with no major injuries.
