Firefighters are known for risking their lives for people who are trapped in dangerous situations. Recently, three firefighters recently ran into a burning house to rescue three Chihuahuas, four puppies and a turtle in Cape Coral, Florida.
All of the animals made it out safely thanks to the quick actions of the firemen, according to News-Press.com. The Cuevases family was out of the home when a pot left on the stove started a fire. A dog next door alerted its owner that something was wrong, and when owner Lydia Kozlowski looked out the window, she immediately checked to see if anyone was inside before calling the fire department.
Rescuers recovered all of the pets, and all of the canines appear to be in good dog health, which is a relief to of 9-year-old Gabriella Cuevas.
"When I first heard about the fire, I started to cry," she told the news provider. "But then they told me that the dogs were alright."
The family unfortunately lost their house and the community is setting up a fund to help them out.
