CAPE MAY COUNTY, N.J. (CBS) — Police bodycam video from Cape May County shows two Middle Township police officers rushing to save people from a burning home. On Saturday morning, the officers arrived at the scene before firefighters on Holly Drive in Rio Grande.

They found an unlocked sliding door and awoke an 83-year-old man and a 72-year-old woman and got them out safely.

The residents of a second-floor apartment had already gotten out safely.

The fire was started by a cigarette butt left on a second-floor deck.
