CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Bakersfield city firefighters rescue dog from house fire

Firefighters pulled a small dog out of a house fire in Bakersfield on Wednesday, and as seen through a one-minute clip of the encounter, managed to resuscitate the dog after it was appearing unresponsive.

With his owner standing nearby, firefighters placed a "specialized animal oxygen mask" over his mouth to send a high flow of oxygen into his lungs, the Facebook post describes.

Jack seemed full of life after using the oxygen mask and was reunited with his relieved owner, who had made it out of the burning property uninjured.

The fire department has been widely praised for its rescue, with hundreds of comments thanking the crew for their bravery.
