Brownsville firefighters rescued a Chihuahua found inside a burning home Wednesday.
The little Chihuahua — close to death — was found inside a small kennel in the home on East 20th Street and was not able to break free on its own.
The kennel already was starting to melt, authorities said.
Firefighters arrived at the scene late Wednesday afternoon and noticed smoke coming out of a window.
A “360“ check was done around the home to see if anyone was inside, firefighter/EMT Basic Viviana Gaytan and firefighter/paramedic Roger Lee McArdle said.
They used a nearby water hose to try and put out the blaze until fire Engine No. 3 arrived at the scene.
