TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - New video released by the Trumann Fire Department shows an amazing rescue of two animals during a house fire.

According to the post on the fire department's Facebook page, the fire happened last week at a home on the 500-block of Maple Street.

The video is from a helmet camera.

It shows Lt. Jeremy Winkles and Chief Revis Kemper breaking through the door and entering the smoke-filled home.

Instantly, you hear two dogs yelping.

The firefighters removed one dog from the home and took it to a nearby truck where paramedics got to work.

While that was underway, a second firefighter pulled the other dog out from underneath a dresser and used an oxygen mask on the dog as well.

Paramedics Joey Holmes and Charles Jones with Trumann EMS put oxygen masks on the dogs, who were suffering from smoke inhalation. They also gave the dogs fluids to help save their lives.

According to the Facebook post, the dogs survived.
