West Thurston Regional Fire Authority firefighters rescued two unconscious dogs from a house fire on Wednesday. “They have quick, smart dogs and a pet loving crew that knew exactly what to do,” said Captain Brian Christiansen in a statement. “We are trained to save people and the pets that people love.” Neighbors reported the fire at about 11:25 a.m. after the homeowners had left for the day. Fire crews quickly contained the fire to a room, and on a secondary search found an Australian Shepard and a Heeler unconscious in the bathtub. The two dogs, Zip and Faith, are self-trained to go to the bathroom by themselves. Crews suspect once the fire broke out the two dogs headed for the bathroom, shut the door, and got in the bathtub.
