Check this out! Police body cam video shows a couple Mid-Michigan police officers searching for a family pet during a house fire.

The St. Charles Police Department posted the video when Officers Connor and Yeager, with help from the Michigan State Police, rescued a cat named Yoda from a house fire on Feb. 27.

The video shows the officers walking through the smoke-filled home looking for the cat, and finally locating it.

"We went upstairs. It was very dense up there. We were up there for a couple of seconds and we couldn't breathe so we had to get out," MSP Trooper Andrew Young said.

The smoke was so bad they had to vacate the home until things were more under control.

Crews were able to put the flames out. That's when the officers went back inside for the cat.

They were able to get the cat out and reunite it with a young boy who was hoping his best friend would make it out alive.

"He was very ecstatic. He was tired too because it was a long night for him, but he was very happy we ended up finding the cat," Young said.

Officials said the smoke was caused by the chimney catching fire.

Everyone else was safe.
