According to KTLA News, there was one surviving pet in a devastating house fire which swept through a Reseda, Calif., residence on Monday afternoon.

Minnesota, a three-year-old Chihuahua, was suffering from smoke inhalation when fast-acting firefighters administered CPR and fitted her with an oxygen mask - thanks to their efforts, she is expected to make a full recovery.
