Sacramento Firefighters Rescue Dog From Hot Car

by Placerville Newswire / Aug 01, 2016 / comments

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Firefighters rescued a dog from a vehicle on Wednesday.

The Sacramento Fire Department tweeted the news, along with a photo of the dog and a firefighter from Truck 2, just before 5 p.m.

In Sacramento County in 2014, three dogs were killed in a hot car with windows only cracked about an inch. A fourth dog survived but barely made it.

Many dog owners like to take their companions everywhere, but that bond can lead to dangerous situations. A new bill would allow you to smash a window to free the dog without any repercussions.
