    A volunteer firefighter walked into a burning home and a police officer cut her arm reaching through a broken window to save two dogs trapped by flames on Long Island Wednesday night.

    Authorities say thick black smoke prevented officers from entering the Spur Drive North home in North Bayshore when they responded to the house fire call shortly before 6:30 p.m.

    One officer managed to pull a small dog out through a broken window. The Brentfood Fire Department also responded, and one of the volunteer firefighters walked into the house and carried a Bullmastiff to safety. 

    The residents weren't home at the time of the blaze.

    Two police officers who suffered smoke inhalatation and the one who cut her arm reaching through the shattered window were treated at a local hospital and released.

    The firefighter who saved the large dog was treated for cuts at the scene.

    The fire is not considered suspicious.
