GILFORD, N.H. (AP) - A police officer who came to the rescue of an elderly couple during a New Hampshire house fire says there wasn’t much thinking involved - training, instinct and adrenaline took over.

Officer Curtis Mailloux, a member of the Gilford Police Department for three years, tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/1uzx1Wi) he saw smoke rising from the windows and eaves when he arrived Sunday night. He said when he got to the door, there was a man standing in the living room area. The door was locked; Mailloux broke in and kicked it down.

Mailloux said he carried the man out, then went back and got his wife. He said both were disoriented.

All three were treated for smoke inhalation.

The couple’s son, Jim Gray, said he is grateful for Mailloux’s actions.
