LAKE WORTH, Texas — Police officers were in the right place at the right time to save a family from a fire this week. 

Lake Worth Police said in a Facebook post that officers were passing through a neighborhood just after 1 a.m. Monday when they saw flames rising from the roof of a home. Officers woke the sleeping family and helped them evacuate. 

Fire crews arrived on the scene soon after to extinguish the flames. No one was injured, according to police. 

Bodycam video obtained by local news shows an officer sweeping through the house as the family scrambles to get out.
