"We were very fortunate to save just those," fire chief Jay Conte told CBS News. "The site was fully involved when we got here, so we didn't think we were going to save any of the animals."
Three of the dogs - Brooklyn Skye, Jade and De Vinci are in stable condition, according to the group, along with Kitten the Cat. The fourth dog, Stella, is in critical condition.
Unlike their fallen friends, whose lives were bookended by tragedy, these animals survived.
