Firefighters save a dog

This happens in Santiago, Chile. A fire breaks out in an old building. It starts on the 12th floor of the building.

A dog is in danger. It has a few burns on its body. Firefighters find the dog. It is unconscious because of the smoke.

The firefighters take the dog. They help him by putting on an oxygen mask. The dog is with its family now. It is getting better and better.

Difficult words: break out (start), danger (it can get hurt or die), unconscious (not able to see, move or feel), oxygen mask (thing that goes on your face and helps you breathe).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
