Two pit bulls make a daring escape from an apartment fire
Our hearts can’t stop pounding after two pit bull mixes jumped to safety during an apartment fire this week in Oregon.
Stuck on the second-floor balcony of a McMinnville apartment complex, Simba and Brandy made a daring leap, with the help of responders. The first dog stood on the balcony railing before jumping. The second dog followed after firefighters cleared a path by removing the rail, according to WPMI NBC 15.
Pictures from the heart-stopping rescue can be found here.
Fortunately, both dogs survived and are receiving treatment at McMinnville Veterinary Hospital, where the staff has donated their time and resources, pro bono. But Simba and Brandy face a long recovery, and since their owner can’t afford the costs associated with it, the hospital is reaching out to the public for donations.
