How about some good news on a Tuesday?

An amazing and inspiring rescue was caught on video Friday as a servant of the people saved a toddler and her grandmother from an inferno in Hazelwood, Missouri.

Around 11:30 a.m., police responded to reports of a house fire at the 100 block of Becker.

Officer Rodriguez arrived first to find the main floor filled engulfed and desperate cries of help coming from a basement window.

The cop’s body camera caught him rushing to the window and KI-YAH! He kicked it open, pulled out the 3-year-old girl, and planted her little feet on solid, flame-free ground.

With the help of a neighbor, he next extracted grandma Latonya Hart. 

God is good — Latonya told St. Louis’s KMOV4:

“When I knew someone was right there, to help me get her out there, my whole mood changed. I was like, thank you Lord, thank you God, somebody is here.”

The brave firefighters of Hazelwood, Florissant Valley, and Berkeley showed up and blasted the blaze.

Good guys: 1; Peril: 0.

Both grandmother and precious granddaughter were treated at the scene; no need for a hospital. Their two dogs are safe as well.

Everything in the house was lost, but things can be replaced.

To help out, a GoFundMe page has been created.
