Firefighters are awesome!

Mountain View Fire Rescue really went above in beyond. After putting out a house fire in the town of Mead, Colorado, the firefighters stayed behind to save the aquarium fish, too. Respect!

The fire started in the garage and quickly engulfed the attic and roof as well.  Thankfully, smoke detectors alerted the homeowner, who was able to escape safely with the pet dog.


Mountain View firefighters arrived at the scene and put out the blaze within 35 minutes of the 911 call.  Mission accomplished ... right?  Not yet!  The firefighters stayed behind to rescue the tropical fish as well.  The fish are said to have suffered no harm in the fire Smile

For the Mountain View Fire Rescue, there is no life too small to save.  Bravo!
