It was an exciting day in Sandusky County. Six pit bulls, three adults and three puppies, were reunited with their owner and rescuers.
"I finally get to see them and make sure they're ok," Tiffeny Egbert, dogs owner said. "I'm really happy right now."
Tuesday, Egbert's world was turned upside down. Her home caught fire with her furry family members trapped inside.
"My first words were my babies are in there."
Luckily for Egbert, the volunteer firefighters on the scene acted fast.
Captain Chuck Krotzer with the Rising Sun Fire Department said, "we got the front door open and we were calling to see if there was anyone in there. Then we heard noises."
Those sounds were coming from the basement. Somehow, through the smoke they spotted three dogs and three puppies hiding under furniture.
"I was pretty nervous," Firefighter Charlie Krotzer said. "But I put my hand out and the biggest male started wagging his tail."
None of the dogs suffered serious injury, despite being exposed to all the smoke.
Egbert credits the firefighters, calling them heroes. She along with the Sandusky County Humane Society said thank you to each one and gave them all a certificate of appreciation.
