Video: Firefighters revive dog from house fire

Crews administered three to four breathing treatments to save the canine


ARLINGTON, Texas — Cell phone video shows firefighters in Texas carrying out a dramatic rescue, battling to save the life of a blaze victim: a beloved family pet.

As three firefighters sprayed down one side of a wall, around the corner came Leah -- limp, but in hands with the power to heal. Rescuers rushed out behind her. And if there was not a happy ending, the desperate attempt to save this dog's life would be too difficult to watch.

"They went through five bottles of oxygen on her, probably three- to four breathing treatments, the same treatment we administer to humans," said Arlington Fire Department spokesman Lt. Kevin Seeton.
