A police officer in Caledonia, Wisconsin, rushed into a burning house and saved a senior dog who was trapped inside. Officer Cory Radke’s heroics were recounted in a release from the department earlier this week.
The department wrote:
On 7/6/20 at 2 PM, while on his way home from a long and hot dayshift, Ofc. Cory Radke and his K-9 partner Louie were headed east on Six Mile Rd when a call came over the radio of a active house fire at 6821 Beechnut Road. Ofc. Radke immediately responded to the house and saw the southern half of the roof fully engulfed in flames.
Officer Radke, and a neighbor, rushed into the burning house and found a 12-year-old Vizsla named Deezel “unbothered by the commotion” sitting on the couch. Radke carried Deezel out of the home and then returned to the burning structure to look for anyone else who might be inside. After calling for other dogs, and searching rooms, Officer Radke exited the home.
The department added:
Ofc. Radke then moved the homeowner’s truck away from the house, and assisted fire personnel upon their arrival. Jackie and Steven Dykstra and their children were not home at the time. Their 12 year old Dachshund Norton did escape the fire on it’s own. The house was severely damaged and the cause of the fire is not known at this time.
The family was “very happy” that their dogs made it out of the home safely.
