Neighbors and friends are touting the brave and compassionate men of the Sacramento Metro Fire Department as heroes after firefighters spent more than an hour resuscitating two dogs rescued from a mobile home fire in Rancho Cordova last week.
According to cbslocal.com, neighbors knew the owners of the home on Redcoat Lane weren't home, and were aware of the two small dogs - Paris and Bella trapped in the burning house.
Miraculously firefighters were able to find the two dogs, but both seemed lifeless as they were carried out. Then came the compassion of the firemen who for more than an hour used CPR and oxygen masks to bring the little canines back to life.
A neighbor saw a paw move and was almost in tears. For some people, their pets are as important to them as their human children.
The dogs were rushed to a nearby veterinary office, but there has been no update on their health other than the dogs being in critical condition.
Wishing Paris and Bella a speedy and full recovery and thanking the brave men of the Sacramento Metro Fire Department for going above and beyond for two little dogs.
