Firefighters are real life heroes who bravely go into a dangerous situations to save the lives of others. These brave men and women value every living thing no matter how small it may be. When a fire broke out in a Lacey, Washington, house the firefighters jumped into action to put it out. There were no people in the home but they did find a family of hamsters in a cage. The tiny animals had passed out from smoke inhalation. Using a “Pet Emergency Pocket Guide,” firefighter Eric Bamer fashioned a makeshift oxygen mask small enough for the mini creatures. Four of the five hamsters were resuscitated. The family has been reunited with their humans.
