All In A Day’s Work: Buffalo Grove Firefighters Rescue Dog on Farrington Drive, While 1 Dog Dies


A house full of smoke and a well-involved kitchen fire didn’t stop firefighters from rescuing the family dog on Farrington Drive.

Buffalo Grove firefighters responded about 2:07 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a house fire in the 700 block of Farrington Drive. Firefighter/paramedics gave the dog oxygen and soothed it in the backyard while police arranged for an animal hospital to accept the dog, that apparently suffered some smoke inhalation. Once police succeeded in connecting with the animal hospital, police and firefighters transported the friendly dog to the vet. A second dog was killed in the fire.
