Firefighters have saved more than 100 pets, including dogs, cats, parrots and even iguanas after a blaze broke out in a house in Southampton.
A husband and wife were also in the house at the time, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said, and one of them was treated for smoke inhalation.
Two dogs were resuscitated by firefighters using oxygen masks, but four animals - a dog, cat, ferret and a bird - could not be saved after they were overcome by smoke.
Firefighters attending the blaze found more than 100 pets including tortoises, guinea pigs, ferrets and rabbits. They rounded up some of the animals and moved them to safety in a room away from the blaze before they doused the fire.
Crews worked extremely hard to control the fire whilst being faced with an unusual situation involving so many animals. Firefighters dealt with the situation extremely well to knock down the fire and save so many animals.
The fire service said the cause of the fire is unknown but the house had no smoke detectors.
