Firefighters perform CPR and use oxygen to save dog

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Fire officials are investigating a house fire that left two dogs dead Thursday morning, but firefighters were able to resuscitate a third one and save it.

The St. George Fire Protection District reported it happened at a home on Christopher's Crossing Drive in the Old Jefferson Crossing subdivision in Baton Rouge.

Firefighters said they received the call about the fire at 9:23 a.m. and when the first truck arrived four minutes later, firemen reported seeing dense smoke inside the home.

They said it appears the fire started in the kitchen and caused moderate fire and heavy smoke damage before being put out around 9:45 a.m.

Investigators said the family was not home at the time of the fire, but three large dogs suffered from smoke inhalation. The dogs were found with no pulse and unresponsive.

SGFPD reported firefighters performed CPR and gave oxygen to the dogs, but only one of them could be saved. The dog was taken to a vet for additional care.

The exact cause of the fire is unknown and remains under investigation.
