SOUTH OAK CLIFF – It was a devastating night for a family on Tioga Street, watching their house in Oak Cliff go up in flames.
Two women and two kids made it out safely and firefighters were able to extinguish the flames, but not before the house was heavily damaged.
But every cloud has a silver lining — in this case, it was a furry lining.
Sticking out of the debris was a little, fuzzy paw — it was Fancy, a poodle mix and one lucky dog. Firefighters fished her out and administered oxygen using a special doggy-oxygen mask.
At first, things weren’t looking good for Fancy. Then, things took a turn: After almost a full tank of oxygen, Fancy was breathing again. And a few minutes later, she was back to her Fancy self– a bright spot in a “ruff” night for her six year-old owner.
