An Oakland dog is recovering today, after emergency responders resuscitated it after it was overcome by smoke during an early-morning house fire.
Oakland Fire Crews responded to a one-alarm blaze at a single-family home on the 1100 block of 85th Avenue at around 4:50 a.m. Wednesday, the Bay Area News Group reports.
According to a post on the Oakland Firefighters Local 55 Facebook page, "As the crews attacked the fire under high heat conditions and zero visibility they simultaneously performed a search as we do at each fire. During the search they found a dog crate with a dog inside."
"Search crew brought the unconscious/unresponsive dog outside and E26 immediately started to provide care to the dog. After providing rescue breathing to the dog the Ambulance Supervisor arrived with a snout mask and we are happy to report the dog is doing well!"
Here's video of the rescuers reviving the overcome pup:
