(Scroll down for video) A police officer is being hailed as a hero after running into a burning house to rescue a trapped dog.

The incident unfolded in the northern Israeli city of Afula.

The Afula division of Magen David Adom said that five residential homes were totally destroyed in the blaze. Northern Region Police officers, Special Operation police officers and firefighters pulled dozens of residents from the homes that were on fire and brought them to safety.

Thankfully, no one was injured. The highlight of the rescue effort began when police officers heard a dog frantically barking from one of the burning homes.

One police officer did not hesitate and ran into the burning building. After a few minutes, he was seen climbing out a window with the dog on his shoulder.

The dog was not injured.
