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.

"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.
