FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities are recognizing three officers for their heroic actions and saving the life of a disabled man. 

Officials received a 911 call about 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 about a house fire in the 2700 block of Wolcott on Flint's west side with a handicap man trapped inside. 

Flint Police Department said Officer Rodney Hall, Officer John Boismier and an unknown undercover officer arrived on scene first and saw flames coming from the home.  

The officers searched the property and found an unlocked window and an incoherent man lying on a bed.

Hall and the undercover officer lifted Boismier through the window. Boismier then picked up the bedridden man and handed him to the officers outside.

All four were treated for smoke inhalation, according to officials.
