This is the touching moment a tiny dog’s life was saved by firefighters.
Penny, a nine-year-old Jack Russell, was carried unconscious from a smoke-filled house in Gorton - then brought back to life on the road outside.
Heroic firefighters from Ashton-under-Lyne and Gorton fire stations were told Penny was trapped inside after the family who live there returned home to discover their home was filled with flames and thick smoke.
Crews in breathing equipment managed to find her in a downstairs room of the terrace house on Pinnington Road, curled up in a ball and unconscious.
The crews have done a really good job, in terms of locating Penny, rescuing her and resuscitating her. She went to the vet’s and the last update we had was that she was doing well and was on the good side. Hopefully she will make a full recovery.
Penny was found unconscious downstairs. She was treated with a standard adult oxygen mask and given oxygen therapy. She came round while fire crews were treating her and was taken to a vets by her owners.”
