San Francisco Firefighters Saved Dogs from Large Fire

As a five-alarm fire consumed an apartment building under construction in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, firefighters were able to save more than the nearby buildings, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.

About six dogs were recovered from around the neighborhood and adjacent evacuated structures and taken to an American Red Cross truck on Third Street.

Volunteers calmed the shaking pups with hand-fed water and kept them sated with peanut butter-and-cheese crackers and multigrain bars.

One dog, a black German shepherd, was rescued from an apartment across the street from the burning building on Fourth Street. Firefighters raced up five flights to the apartment after a window shattered and the dog began barking.
