OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Police officers have rescued five adults, including one in a wheelchair, from a house fire in north Omaha.

Officers Robbie Goering-Jensen and Anthony Abboud were responding to a call from a No Frills Supermarket around 9 a.m. Sunday when they saw the house engulfed in flames.

They immediately rescued two residents and their dog from the home. Goering-Jensen then heard screams and re-entered the house to rescue three more people.

Several other officers arrived on the scene and helped before firefighters arrived. The fire was extinguished in about 20 minutes.

Goering-Jensen and Abboud were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. Goering-Jensen was taken to a local hospital and later released.

Abboud had been working his first shift since graduating from the Omaha Police Academy on Friday.
