Home alone is an ever-present danger for house pets.
They don’t have the ability to get out of the house in case of danger, especially when there’s a fire in the house.
More than 40 firefighters from seven fire companies battled a house fire in Morrisdale, Pa. It took four hours to control the blaze that caused more than $200,000 in damage.
Two children were home at the time of the fire. They escaped without injury, and were reunited with their parents and two siblings.
The family’s 10 house cats weren’t so lucky.
Firefighters found the cats appearing lifeless. All had succumbed to smoke inhalation, trapped inside the burning house.
Firefighters – not willing to give up on any victims – worked feverishly to revive the cats from their near-death condition. These first responders use animal-specific CPR and oxygen treatment to revive animals in such peril.
Amazingly, all 10 cats were revived and were sent by private vehicle for further observation and veterinary treatment.
Thanks, and praise, for the wonderful firefighters who make such recoveries possible. Their dedication and hard work make such heart-warming miracles possible.
