On Tuesday, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department responded to a blaze at a residence. Though its human occupants managed to escape from the burning home on their own, two small dogs remained trapped inside.
Upon learning that fact, one heroic firefighter rushed inside to save them. Time was evidently of the essence, as indicated by the fact that he entered the building without equipment to protect him from the smoke indoors.
The dramatic moment was caught on video by news station FOX 5 San Diego.
