ROY (ABC4 News) – Three people were saved by officers after a fire broke out at their home early Tuesday morning in Roy.

Video posted by the Roy City Police Dept. on Facebook shows the whole event unfolding at a home near 2000 West 3800 South.

In the video an officer is seen with one of the residents of the home.


Officers say they woke up the woman around 1:15 p.m. by banging on the front door.

The video shows officers usher the woman to safety and then she is heard begging them to help the others inside.

“Please get my sister and my nephew. Please! Please!” the woman is heard begging officers.

Officers are then seen running back to the home and throwing large rocks into the window to break the window.
