Hysterical Woman
Rescues Pup From
There were four women trapped in
the smoke-filled second story of the
apartment at 1506 Packard St. Sun-
day, but the crowd was more interest-
ed in the puppy caught in the coal bin.
The fire was well underway with
smoke pouring from the house when
the firemen arrived. The necessary
draft has been furnished when one of
the occupants opened a window,
thinking that a dinner was burning
in another apartment. The four wom-
en finally were reached and brought
down. It was after they were down
that one of them remembered her dog
was inside.
Half-hysterical, the woman reen-
tered and found the three-week-old
puppy. She brought it outside and
laid it on the lawn and tried to use
artificial respiration. A large crowd,
mostly children. had gathered around.
Finally, retching and weak, the pup
was revived.
After returning once to re-put out
the fire, the firemen left. The dog lay!
on the grass beside his mistress while
the owner estimated that damage
would run to several thousand dollars.
