Firefighters in Fresno, California, recently saved the life of a puppy who had been sealed inside of a backpack which was inside of a burning structure. The rescue effort was recounted by the Fresno Fire Department on Thursday:
Your #fresnofirefighters have had a busy January. 524 fires since the first day of the year, with 294 of these incidents having homeless involvement.
Today, they were called out to a vacant home on the 3800 block of E. Woodward for a reported structure fire. This is the site of previous fires related to homeless activity.
According to the department, the puppy was found in a room where the fire started. The agency writes:
On arrival, firefighters encountered smoke showing and initiated an interior fire attack. The crews inside found that someone had been burning wire intentionally on the floor of the home. They knocked down the fire quickly and while conducting a search of the occupancy, firefighters rescued this little girl from the room the fire was started in. She was found sealed inside a backpack.
The pup was evaluated for injuries and then turned over to the SPCA for care. Kudos to those involved in her rescue!
Happy to report that the quick actions of the Engine 4 and Engine 8 crews were able to get her out before she was injured.
