Firefighters administer oxygen to Peanut
Let's send good thoughts out to 'Peanut,' who hails from the Tracy area in Arkansas. Her home's window air-conditioning unit started on fire yesterday, and although five people were evacuated, Peanut could not get out of the house.
After the fire was under control, about a half-hour after the fire was reported, firefighters rushed out with the tiny dog and administered oxygen to her.
Peanut was taken to an area veterinarian, where she was listed in critical condition Monday afternoon.
Please get well soon Peanut. Read more at the Baxter Bulletin.
