Dog rescued from house fire

A dog has been rescued by firefighters from a fire at a house in Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham at 7:40pm on Wednesday.

Three fire crews from Rotherham and Cudworth stations were called to the incident on Red Kite Avenue. The fire was in the kitchen area and was due to a hob being left on accidentally.  No one was home at the time, however, when fire crews searched the detached house they found a dog which was semi-conscious.

The crews did a fantastic job in rescuing the dog and administering oxygen which thankfully resuscitated the dog.

The owners returned and the Border Terrier was taking to a vet for a check up.  It is believed that the dog is doing well.

Firefighters used hose reels to quickly put the fire out before leaving the scene at 10pm.
