Firefighter Revives Dog in Fire

It’s rare you get to see a dramatic fire rescue on video. It’s probably even rarer that you get to see a successful fire rescue involving two dogs.

In a video that is now starting to gain attention, a Detroit firefighter is seen carrying the limp bodies of two dogs out of a burning house, one of which is a puppy. The owner is heard yelling “Did you get my dog out?” as the firefighter emerges.

It’s unclear when the footage was captured, but the clip is part of a larger documentary called “Burn: One Year on the Front Lines of the Battle to Save Detroit.” The film was a hit at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring, but the creators are still trying to secure funds for a larger release.
