Firefighters Take in Dog They Rescued While Owner is in the Hospital


Responding to a blaze on Monday, Brooklyn firefighters had to pull two victims to safety: one overcome owner and his dog. The owner ended up getting sent to the hospital in a serious, but not a life-threatening condition. The singed pooch got plucked out of the burning house at Linden Blvd. near East 54th St. after the fire started just before 2:00 p.m. The home’s sole resident had to go to the hospital and left their dog with no one to care for it. At least, until the warmhearted firefighters said they’ll take him home temporarily.

FDNY says that the firefighters who rescued the canine will be looking after the dog until the owner is able to. They even tweeted it from their Twitter account. They said: “FDNY FFs in Brooklyn saved this dog from a fire today & plan look after it until the owner is again able.”

Twitter users who saw the tweet and provided great feedback, saying the following:

“Amazing work guys! The best reward:),” wrote MegAllanCole.

The firefighters even got some love from across the ocean.

“A kiss from France thanks ;-),” wrote Less Lie.

Aside from looking sooty and scared, the dog was uninjured, firefighters said.
