We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, “There’s a special place in heaven for people who rescue dogs.”
We truly admire people who go out of their way and even risk their own lives to save animals. They are heroes.
The firemen in the video below truly are heroes. These brave firefighters entered a burning home in Sacramento in search of victims and to see the source of the fire. They didn’t find any humans inside, but they found a dog, hiding in the back bedroom. The firemen then quickly got the dog out of the burning home.
The rescue was caught on the fireman’s helmet cam. Watch the footage below!
DOG RESCUE: Helmet Cam footage from an early morning house fire today shows two perspectives on Truck Company operations. Upon arrival at a working house fire, the four-person truck company splits in half. The Saw firefighter and the Apparatus Operator ladder the building and go to the roof to provide vertical ventilation, cutting a hole in the roof to allow smoke and hot gasses to escape. The Tools firefighter and the Captain go inside the home to search for victims and help locate the seat of the fire. In this video, footage from helmet cameras from both the Saw and Tools firefighters from Truck 6 are interspersed to show these operations, culminating with the rescue of a dog from her hiding place in a back bedroom. The occupants of the home all got out safely, due to a working smoke detector, and the dog was reunited with her happy owner on the sidewalk outside.
