Dog rescued from house fire in Wisconsin

Wausau Daily Herald reports:

A yellow Lab was rescued from a house fire this afternoon on Wausau’s west side, and three other animals and the home's three residents also were not harmed, according to the Wausau Fire Department.

The fire was reported just after 4 p.m., at a home in the 200 block of South Sixth Avenue. Smoke billowed from the windows of the second story as firefighters broke open several windows, but no flames were visible from outside the home.

Firefighters helped resuscitate Coda, a 7-year-old Lab, who had to be rescued from the home. Firefighters performed mouth-to-nose resuscitation and also placed an oxygen mask over the dog's face. Coda was taken to VCA Companion Care Animal Hospital in Wausau, and the owner of the home, Todd Borchardt, later said Coda was doing fine and would stay overnight at an animal hospital in Mosinee.
