A baby dog and a cat have been rescued from a house fire by an unlikely source.
Read more”We went to check on the house where the fire was starting and saw that it was a home where we had not seen the family for several months,” said John Molloy, a volunteer fireman who rescued the two dogs and two cats from the blaze.
“They were on the roof when we arrived, and I think it was about 6.30pm and I saw a big white van and we got to the roof in about 10 minutes and they were gone.”
The house on the corner of the street was on fire and the firefighters had not been able to get in, so the two pets were moved inside.
“When we arrived there was a woman standing on the door, and we knew that she had just come from the house,” Mr Mollog said.
“She said, ‘Oh, I was thinking of having the cats out, but I’ve got to go out for a few minutes’.”
So we just put them in the van and drove off.
We got them to a vet and had them checked out.
“The rescue team also managed to save two other pets, a cat and a dog, but they were not able to be saved.
The dogs were placed in the care of the Fire and Rescue Association of New South Wales.”
We’ve got a bit of a history here and it’s quite exciting that we’re going to get the chance to help out.””
There’s nothing that I can do about them, but if I could, I would give them to the family.”
