Firefighters give oxygen to dogs after apartment fire

NEW PORT RICHEY, FLORIDA (FOX 32 News) - A photo of firefighters caring for five dogs after an apartment fire has gone viral.

New Port Richey (Florida) firefighters Rustin Hammes and Alex Hardman gave the dogs oxygen after they were carried to safety on Friday.

Sadly, the fire department later said that three of the dogs did not survive.

"Unfortunately even after we successfully resuscitated all five of these dogs, the tiny puppy and both parents did not make it," the department said on Facebook. "The vet is hopeful that the remaining two larger dogs will recover. We send them our best wishes and hopes for a full recovery. Once again, thank you for sharing all of your well wishes and thanks."
