Police officers in Buena Vista, Virginia, escorted a couple to safety and rescued their dog when their home caught fire on Sunday, March 25.

Lovie Atkinson, one of the homeowners, ran a daycare center in the city for years, the report said, and locals are reaching out to assist the family. A GoFundMe fundraising campaign was created to support the Atkinsons. Credit: Buena Vista Police Department via Storyful
