The firefighters’ team responded at 8.21am to a Fire Alarm in the 1000 block of West 14th Street in Merced, California on Thursday (19th August).
Firefighters said there were no injuries, but a dog named Oreo and a cat, Sassafras were taken out of the house after being poisoned with smoke. The animals suffered from respiratory disorders.
