Pets are cherished members of the family, which is why one Washington state fire department did everything in their power to save a dying dog trapped inside his owner’s burning home.
This past month, firefighters from Snohomish County Fire District 7 received a call about a local home that had caught on fire and immediately rushed to the location. Once they arrived, they found the family standing safely outside the home, but as they spoke to everyone, they realized one member of the family didn’t make it out.
Sampson, the family’s dog, was still trapped somewhere inside, and the rescuers knew he wasn’t going to make last much longer inside the burning building if he was even still alive. The crew refused to abandon Sampson and bravely rushed inside to look for him.
“Firefighters quickly forced entry into the home to start their initial search,” the department said. “Crews were able to locate the dog and bring him out to the driveway where the medics were.” Sampson was unresponsive, but the determined rescuers began giving him CPR and oxygen until he finally woke up.
Sampson was brought to the vet just to make sure he didn’t have any other injuries and was miraculously released that very same day when the vet failed to find anything wrong with him.
