Firefighters rescue 2 dogs from house fire

Firefighters made a rare rescue while battling a house fire in the West Pullman neighborhood overnight.

The fire broke out in the 600 block of West 117th Place just after midnight Thursday.

When crews arrived, the homeowner reported two dogs were still in the back of the house.

Firefighters were able to find the pit bull and Shih Tzu, and pull them to safety.

Paramedics used special K-9 masks to give them oxygen.

The dogs, named Bella and Patchy, quickly started to respond.

The fire chief on the scene told WGN the ambulance has had those special K-9 masks for several years, because the department values all life.
