On Friday, March 21, 2014, firefighters from Modesto, Calif., saved the life of a dog trapped inside a burning home.

The fire started around 2 p.m. on the 2300 block of Bolton Court. The flames along high winds caused a second home to catch fire.

Fortunately, no humans were home at the time of the incident but a house pet was trapped inside one of the burning homes.

Hero fire rescuers quickly controlled the blaze and entered the property to rescue anyone trapped inside. That’s when the dog was found and brought out to safety.

A total of 30 firefighters were on the scene fighting the flames and the fire was completely extinguished 40 minutes after it had started.

Fire officials declared the property damage is estimated at $225,000.
