Tucson firefighters rescued five puppies from a fire that destroyed a home on Wednesday and displaced its four residents. When crews from the Tucson Fire Department (TFD) arrived at the home near Fort Lowell Road and Stone Avenue, they saw heavy smoke at the house and discovered the fire was coming from the back bedroom.
While working the scene, they also found five newborn puppies on the front porch who needed oxygen. The animal oxygen masks that fire crews carry didn't fit the tiny puppies, so the firefighters held the masks as close as possible to fully revive the puppies.
One of the firefighters even managed to rescue some photo albums from the fire.
Even though the home was destroyed, there were no injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the Red Cross was called to assist the three adults and one teenager who were displaced.
