Today one of our rookies, Officer Frye (in photo) and Officer McQueen responded to 205 34th St. for a fire on the 15th floor. A husky was removed from the fire. Thankfully there were no burns, just smoke inhalation. This pup was unconscious when the fire fighter found him but they immediately got him oxygen when they got him down to the street and the dog became alert and responsive. Our officers then transferred him to Bay Beach Vet Hospital for further treatment and his owners were notified. His name is Igor. What a successful and happy ending! Igor is expected to make a full recovery. He is still on oxygen. Thank you to our Officers and FD
