14. Firefighters rescue dog
Austin firefighters rescued a dog after responding to a house fire at the 800 block of Ninth Street Southeast on Thursday, Nov. 23. Though the damage was contained to the kitchen area and the homeowners weren’t at home, firefighters did have to perform CPR on a dog they pulled from the house.
The dog was taken to the Austin Vet Clinic and held overnight, as vets were concerned it inhaled too much smoke. Austin Fire Chief Mickey Healey later said the dog made a full recovery.
