“On 12/30/2015 at 7:25am, the York City Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire. Crews arrived on the scene to find heavy fire showing from two homes and rapidly spreading. Crews found the occupant who advised everyone was out but his two dogs were still inside.
As crews worked to extinguish the fire, they also searched for and found two Chihuahuas inside the home. The dogs were removed, one appeared to be alright and the other was in sever distress. The dog was limp and barley breathing. Crews grabbed the pet resuscitation mask from Engine 99-2 and along with crews from White Rose Ambulance administrated high flow oxygen. After approximately 10 minutes of care, the dogs started to respond.
Both dogs were transported to a local emergency veterinarian. Both dogs have fully recovered and have been reunited with the owner”. – Chief David Michaels
