A police officer ran through his burning home to save his entire family.
Officer Anthony Louie from Oklahoma responded to reports of a house fire in the early hours of November 13.
When the Seminole Police Department officer got to the scene he realised his own home was on fire and that his family were inside.
Officer Louie sprinted into the burning building, suffering serious burns as he darted through the burning porch.
Thankfully the quick thinking police man managed to get his family out of the home.

A post on the Seminole Police Department's Facebook page reads: "Upon entering the residence he had to run through the flame engulfed porch and in doing so sustained serious burns and smoke inhalation injuries.
"Officer Louie’s family was not physically injured due to his bravery and quick action."
A description on the fundraiser set up for Officer Louie reads: "He was successful in saving his family but in doing so, he sustained severe burns all over his body and severe internal damage from the smoke.
"The family has lost everything and Officer Louie will be out of work for a very long time while recovering."
It is not currently clear what caused the fire.
"The overwhelming support received for Officer Louie has been amazing and his family and fellow officers wish to thank each and every person for their thoughts and prayers," the Facebook post continues.
