For all the 'bad press' this country gets (mainly from within strangely enough) it isn't really such a bad place when we can still exercise such compassion and deploy resources to aid our loyal fellow creatures like dogs etc.

Great, heartening story!

Just one point on editing. It's pointless telling us the incident finish time if we aren't being told when it began. What can we infer from that?

Well done the firefighters. Next time they are forced into an industrial dispute, and 2 or 3 morons start saying they should all be sacked, let's remember the countless little incidents such as this where they rescue people and animals.

Well said Boris.

Another heart warming example is in today's Maldon Standard.

A moggy rescued from a house boat fire and suffering the effects of smoke inhalation was given oxygen by the fire service.
