Dog dies hours after being saved by Dallas firefighters

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS COUNTY, Texas - A dog rescued and resuscitated by Dallas firefighters on Monday morning has died, officials told FOX4.

The fire started before 12:30 a.m. on Monday in the 3800 block of Tioga Street. The two women and two children who live inside were able to make it out of the home without any injuries.

The home was heavily damaged and a lot of belongings were lost, but everyone inside made it out safely. Firefighters also pulled the family dog out of the debris after the fire was put out. 

Paramedics used a special dog oxygen mask on the animal and after almost a full tank of oxygen, 3-year-old Fancy became responsive.

The family said the dog was still having trouble breathing after being resuscitated and later died on Monday, according to officials at Dallas Animal Services.

Investigators have not determined a cause of the fire but they believe it started in a back bedroom. The Red Cross is helping the now-displaced family.
