Video released by a Georgia police department shows how officers were able to save an elderly woman from a house fire.

On Thursday, the Columbus Police Department shared the above video from the response to a house fire that happened back on May 10 on Waterhill Road.

According to police, officers responded around 12:45 a.m. after they smelled smoke nearby and eventually found the home engulfed in flames.

Authorities knocked on doors and windows but got no response.

Neighbors told officers they believed someone was still inside, an 89-year-old woman.

With the fire spreading and firefighters not yet on the scene, police kicked the front door open, finding the resident who was asleep in her bedroom, and escorting her to safety.
