SAPULPA, Okla. — Two days into 2021, a Sapulpa police officer's home burned to the ground.

Captain Stephen Zamudio thought it was a normal Sunday night.

“I had been watching football all day and just chilling at the house, me and the dog,” Zamudio said.

But just after midnight, tragedy struck the first responder’s home.

“Smoke, there’s the glow. I know what this is. I’ve heard fire," Zamudio said.

Zamudio called his dispatch and the Sapulpa Fire Department, who he's worked hand in hand with, responded.

Unfortunately, not much could be saved. But his fellow first responders tried.

"They were grabbing pictures, or whatever they could to save," Zamudio said.

The house is likely a total loss. The state fire marshal will be working to determine a cause of the fire. Zamudio and his family lost all of their possessions.

A GoFundMe is set up to help the family, to donate, click here.
