Firefighters rescued a family dog from a smoke-filled apartment near 19th and Dunlap avenues in Phoenix on Thursday, authorities said. Upon arrival, Phoenix firefighters found a single apartment that was covered in a heavy black smoke. After a thorough search, they found an unresponsive dog that firefighters then quickly removed from the apartment and started performing resuscitation efforts, according to a press release. Firefighters from Phoenix stations 20 and 60 teamed up to deploy a “Fido Bag,” a life-saving tool that contain reusable oxygen masks that are specially designed to fit animals. Fido Bags are supplied to local fire departments and professional K9 handlers from the Fetch Foundation, according to the release.
