SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) - Sumter County Fire & Rescue responded to a house fire on Freeman Avenue Wednesday evening and saved a small dog.

According to a Facebook post, crews quickly put out the blaze that was confined to the kitchen area of a home in the 200 block of South Freeman Avenue just before 6 p.m.

The post said a small dog, that wasn't breathing due to smoke, was found inside the home.

Firefighters then used a pet oxygen resuscitation kit and revived the small pup and returned it to its owners.
