Just before the 16:00 mark in the video you can hear firefighters on the radio talking about bringing a dog out during this house fire. Shortly thereafter, firefighters are seen coming out of the rear of the house with a seemingly lifeless dog. The firefighters found the dog in the basement towards the end of fighting the blaze in a two story house. Once outside, firefighters were able to revive the dog.

The Lima Fire Department responded to a two-story brick house engulfed in flames just before 9:15 a.m. at 705 S. Pine St., Lima. Cola was removed from the fire, limp, unresponsive and covered in ash.

Linda Bailey, 44, who rents the house, was inconsolable when she saw firefighters carrying out the lifeless dog. The dog was found in the basement. Crying and screaming, she approached her.

Firefighters worked for about five minutes on the dog, pumping oxygen into her through a mask, until they confirmed she was breathing.
