North Smithfield, RI ~ A severe thunderstorm rolled through the region and reportedly sparked this blaze at 4 Pine Lane on July 18, 2012. The dwelling was on a dirt common driveway/road with no hydrants in the area.

 

Engine 2 arrived to find heavy fire through the roof of this 1 and 2 story L-shaped dwelling. Engine 1 arrived and joined Engine 2 in attack. A neighbor reported that the family dog was in the house and in a bedroom.

 

Two members of the first due companies searched the dwelling under heavy fire conditions and found the dog in a rear bedroom. The dog was unresponsive as the firefighters exited the structure.

 

Members used their newly acquired dog snout resuscitator and performed 2 minutes of CPR. The dog was revived and transported by EMS to the local animal center.

A second alarm tanker task force was also requested due to the lack of hydrants in this section of the town.
