The RSPCA has praised CFA fireys after they rescued a frightened puppy that had hidden under a bed during a house fire.

The terrified pooch was too scared to move but after a bit of coaxing and a quick grab crews managed to carry him to safety while colleagues tackled the blaze.

The fire was started by an unattended candle but luckily the residents had working smoke alarms.

Did you know a growing number of CFA brigades also perform Emergency Medical Response (EMR)?
This means we co-respond with Ambulance Victoria to life threatening medical emergencies – often where the patient is not conscious or not breathing.
If firefighters are first on scene, they commence medical treatment until paramedics arrive with advanced equipment and the patient is handed over.
