Dog Rescued From California Fire


Firefighters recued a dog from a two-alarm house fire in Sacramento on Monday night.

Officials said the blaze happened on F Street near 12th Street.

A crowd, that gathered at the scene, cheered as Capt. Chad Augustine brought out the dog from the burning home.

A friend of the dog's owner describes what it was like when the fire started.

"The smoke was so thick and we like lost the puppy in the middle of all of it and then, we just waited around. I mean for like for one ray of hope, that she was still alive. It was just amazing. They did a great job," said owner's friend Teresa Pettingell.

Fire crews took about half an hour to control the blaze.

No one was injured in the fire. There was no immediate word on what caused the fire.
