Firefighters successfully entered the smoke-filled residence through a rear kitchen door and managed to rescue Lottie, a small dog.
As fellow firefighters focused on suppressing the flames, Richard and Katie provided oxygen to Lottie, a normally fluffy white dog now completely blackened by smoke and unresponsive. Employing the specially designed pet CPR masks, generously contributed by the RSPCA and now standard on every fire appliance, Lottie exhibited signs of recovery after 20 minutes, with her eyes gradually opening.
