Russian Firefighters Save Pigs – level 1

01-02-2017 07:00

This happens in Tomsk, Russia. A fire starts at a pig farm. There are about 200 pigs there.

The fire is very big. It is 700 metres big. Seven fire engines and 26 firefighters fight the fire.

Firefighters come out to put the fire out. They also save the pigs. The piglets squeal as the firefighters carry them out.

Difficult words: put out (stop), piglet (a baby pig), squeal (make loud sounds).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
