Firefighters rescue dog from burning California home

Firefighters rescue dog from burning California home

A California fire department is getting a ton of love after they responded to a blaze and saved the life of the owners' four-legged companion.

A video of a fireman, identified by the department as Fire Engineer Matt Smith, walking out with the unresponsive dog, Jack, was shared on Facebook.

Firefighters laid the dog gently on the front yard grass and placed an oxygen mask over its nose. They rubbed the dog's belly and head coaxing it to start breathing on its own. One firefighter patted Jack and rubbed his back during the process.

The fire department gave an update on Jack's condition on Friday and said that despite suffering "some respiratory tract injuries and burns to his feet", his condition had significantly improved.

The firefighter who carried him from the home visited Jack on Thursday.

But the family and little Jack aren't the only ones showing the firefighters some love. It has been viewed over 5.5 lakh times in just 24 hours.

It was even picked up by news station across the nation.

BFD said: "BFD firefighters consider it an honour and duty to serve our community ... and that includes protecting our pets, livestock and wildlife as well".

I'm proud every single day of the work the men and women of the BFD perform.
