When a mobile home fire broke out in Oakland Monday night, first responders not only pulled two women from the blaze and swiftly extinguished the flames, but also saved a real goofball of a dog.
You guys, I know I shouldn't love pictures of animals in oxygen masks, as the situation is obviously the result of scary, dangerous circumstances. AND YET I AM OBSESSED. I mean, LOOK AT THIS GUY.
According to Oakland Fire Department Battalion Chief Dino Torres, emergency crews were called to the 3500 block of High Street, which is near Interstate 580, at 10:07 Monday night.
When they arrived, they discovered a burning mobile home occupied by two women, KRON4 reports, and the dog you see above.
Firefighters rescued both women, who were transported by ambulance to the hospital for smoke inhalation. They also treated the women's dog for smoke inhalation, and he's reportedly doing well.
By 10:21, the fire (which ABC7 says began in a "front bedroom") was under control. As of publication time, Torres says, the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
