When a fire erupted in a Middletown, Virginia home, a mother and son narrowly escaped, but their cat was still inside. The feline in the flames, named Lucky, proved to live up to its name when it was rescued by Stephens City volunteer firefighter Pete Quinones, pictured above with the saved cat.  



Good news for the cat!

Someone I knew who worked in volunteer firefighting said that they tried to save whoever they could (including pets).


I also saw a video of a rescue guy who found a kitten and saved it by mouth to mouth? I am going to look for that now!

I know somebody who went from working at Paramount to teaching pet first aid, including CPR and mouth-to-mouth.


I have also seen that some local fire depts. are carrying small oxygen masks for infants and/or pets.  IMO firefighters are real heroes/heroines.

(and my computer iz froze up.  More later. K?)

Thanks so much for the link!

That link isn't working, for some reason...here's her resume'
