Firemen give pet hamsters oxygen

29 September 2014, 11:09

US firemen used oxygen and first aid to save a family of pet hamsters caught in a mobile home blaze.

The crew, from the Lacey Fire Department in Washington state, relied on 'pet emergency pocket guides' to bring the injured rodents back to life.

Five hamsters - Oreo, Madonna and three unnamed baby hamsters - - were recovered from the blaze. Unfortunately, one of the pets later died.

Thankfully, no humans were in the trailer at the time of the fire caused by a faulty tumble drier.

The fire department later tweeted: "Yes. Our crews are trained and specially equipped to care for animals that have been rescued from a house fire."
