Firefighters rescue dog from burning barn

The dog was chained to a dog run and trapped


MODESTO, Calif. — A Stanislaus Consolidated Fire District captain rushed through flames Thursday morning to save a dog trapped inside a burning barn.

While another firefighter sprayed water toward the dog, Capt. Les Porter dove under a boat that was fully engulfed to unchain the animal from a dog run.

The pit bull named Moe suffered burns on the pad of his left rear paw, but was otherwise unharmed.
