The officers were the first on scene and found a female victim still in the car while the engine was ablaze.
The doors of the car wouldn’t open and the airbags had deployed. The two officers along with help from civilians and a Greendale police officer cut through air bags to pull the woman out of the burning car through the window.
The victim was taken to the hospital and the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department is investigating the accident.
“Great teamwork and quick thinking by all involved in this rescue!” the department said in a news release.
