Husky dog rescued from house fire

Winsbury Way, Bradley Stoke, Bristol

Fire engineFirefighters have rescued and revived a Husky dog after he was trapped in a house which was on fire.

When crews arrived at the property they found a well-developed fire which was spreading to the roof.

Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus had to force entry as the occupants were not home. They tackled the fire using two high pressure hose reels. A positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear the smoke.

While conducting a search of the premises firefighters found a three year-old Husky dog called Frank inside. He was unconscious so crews carried him outside where he was given some oxygen and came around.

He had also suffered some burns so was taken by his owner, who had arrived on the scene, to the local vet.

Firefighters also forced entry to a neighbouring property to check it was not affected by the fire. Fortunately, the fire had not spread.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
