Family honors firefighters who saved their dog from fire
A family honored a group of firefighters who rescued their dog after their home caught fire in Flemington.
John and Kelly Suchorsky say they are grateful to have their golden retriever Riley after the dog was successfully resuscitated by firefighters after she breathed in smoke.
The home caught fire New Year's Eve while they were out. The first responders were equipped with a special oxygen mask for animals that helped save Riley's life.
The crew said they were just happy to help.
"It's very emotional for me, personally," says First Aid Chief David Giuliana. "I have dogs and if my dog was in a fire, I would certainly want all the first responders to do what they can to assist her."
The couple also met the dispatcher from ADT security services who assisted in the emergency.
