Hamsters revived by firefighters

Makin Close, Oldland

Two hamsters needed oxygen after a fire at their home.

Firefighters were called to tackle a small fire at the property, which started accidentally after a fault with a washing machine.

The occupants of the house were out at the time but firefighters rescued two hamsters in a cage on the first floor of the smoke-logged property.

As the hamsters appeared to be subdued crews placed an oxygen mask close to them and they were revived.
