This is the heartwarming moment firefighters revived a dog called Jack after pulling it from a house fire in Bakersfield California

- A California dog can breathe easier after being rescued from a house fire.

Firefighters pulled a small dog out of a house fire in Bakersfield on Wednesday, and as seen through a one-minute clip of the encounter, managed to resuscitate the dog after it was appearing unresponsive.

The firefighters used high flow oxygen and a special animal mask to bring little Jack round, before transporting the dog to the local vets for a check-up and treatment - although he looked more than a little dazed by the events.

It all started as first responders made the scene of a garage explosion that quickly engulfed a family's home with his dog still inside. They found "Jack" unresponsive, inside the burning home.

Video shows how Jack was carried from the home and laid out on the garden appearing extremely short of breath as its tiny body quivered. It has been viewed over 5.5 lakh times in just 24 hours.

An animal oxygen mask was put on the dog, identified by the Bakersfield Fire Department (BFD) as Jack. "BFD Firefighters consider it an honor and duty to serve our community.and that includes protecting our pets, livestock, and wildlife as well".

Fire Chief Douglas Greener released a statement Friday thanking everyone for their support and encouragement.
