Firefighters in California responded to a house fire on Wednesday.

Crews searched the inside of the home and rescued a dog, then treated it with oxygen, firefighters said.

The story has gone viral, having been shared more than 9,000 times and viewed by more than 621,000 people. They found "Jack" unresponsive, inside the burning home.

The dog's owner looked on as the firefighters revived the pet using a specialized animal oxygen mask and high flow oxygen.

After a few harrowing moments, Jack is awake and responsive.

According to the department, the BFD Firefighters also transported Jack to a local veterinary clinic for follow-up assessment and treatment.

Veterinarians say the dog suffered respiratory tract injuries, but is now doing well.

In a post on Facebook, Bakersfield Fire Department said that the dog was "pulled from the interior unresponsive, with semi-agonal respirations".

Fire Chief Douglas Greener released a statement Friday thanking everyone for their support and encouragement. But we truly do believe that all lives matter and protecting pets, livestock, and wildlife is definitely part of the broader BFD mission in serving the community.
