‘I heard a lady come out of the house with two kids saying there were two people inside,’ Howard told WSPA.

Speaking about entering the burning house and rescuing the couple and their dog, he said: ‘We got them over to the far side of the road and other officers spoke with them.

‘I know that one of them was taken to the hospital for some burns and smoke inhalation but as far as I know, everyone’s okay.’

When asked about his heroic act, Howard said he would want others to do the same if it were his family.

He said: ‘You know if it were my family inside, I would want some stranger to do the exact same thing.

‘It’s nothing that no other officer has not done before, and I’m sure officers long after me will continue doing the same thing.’   

Conway Police Department, who released the bodycam footage, said on Twitter: ‘Officer Carson Howard… arrived at the scene of a house engulfed in flames and without regard for his own safety, he’s immediately run into the burning home.

‘He led two people and their dog out to safety. He’s a great example of selflessness and the heartbeat behind the badge.’
