Dog Left Alone Trapped in Basement as Family and 2 Other Dogs Escape House Fire


Risking their own lives is all part of the job as a firefighter, but they do it because they want to ensure everyone’s safety. Even then, firefighters don’t discriminate when it comes to saving a life.

Many stories recounting these rescues are about firefighters saving pets who become trapped inside of homes.

Fortunately for them, many have survived thanks to the sacrifice of these men and women.

That brings us to this more recent story involving a few brave New Jersey firefighters.

On Friday, Jan. 19, crews from several local departments — Neptune, Neptune City, Asbury Park and Wall — responded to a raging house fire.

When they got there around 9:40 a.m., their attention turned toward a pup named Jasmine.

While the family and two other dogs were able to escape, this helpless dog was alone and trapped in the basement.

There’s no telling what may have been going through Jasmine’s mind during those frightening moments. Yet, help was soon on the way.

Jasmine was eventually pulled from the home but wasn’t breathing properly.

“She was in very poor shape when she came out of the house,” said Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator Mike DiLeo.

First responders used a special pet oxygen mask to revive the dog. They said the device was provided by a charity program called Project Breathe.

It certainly came in handy for Jasmine. Within 15 minutes, she was feeling better.

DiLeo said the pooch “ran over” to her owner when they arrived on scene. She is now expected to make a full recovery.

Apparently, Jasmine and her family lost a lot in the fire, but the American Red Cross has offered to help relocate them to another home.

In the meantime, the Monmouth County Fire Marshal’s Office is in charge of an ongoing investigation.

They hope to find out what may have led up to the destructive fire. Clearly, it left a family without a home, but what matters most is that no one lost their life.
