Dog resuscitated, following house fire

Emergency Services had to resuscitate a dog this week, following a house fire in the Island's capital.

At around 10.30pm on Wednesday firefighters received several 999 calls from a property in Douglas.

When crews arrived, everyone was accounted for - apart from the family dog, who was still in the property.

After 15 minutes of searching and the use of thermal imaging cameras and high pressure hose reels officers managed to find the pooch.

They then used animal oxygen masks and chest compressions to resuscitate the dog, which was handed over to a vet for further treatment.

The fire service thanked charity Paws for Therapy, who kindly provided the masks, which have, again, saved a pets life.
