Firefighters from the Lacey, Washington Fire Department recently responded to a call about a burning mobile home. The crew quickly extinguished the fire and noticed a family of pet hamsters inside the burning building. They grabbed the five hamsters—later identified as Oreo, Madonna and three unnamed babies—and brought them outside to safety.

Afterwards they administered oxygen to the furry critters. The adults survived and so did two of the offspring. Nobody else was in the building at the time and no firefighters were injured. For more info visit Lacey Fire District 3 and Komo News.
