Firefighters rushed to rescue a little Labrador pup called Buster, who fell unconscious after inhaling smoke in a kitchen fire in South Birmingham, England.

The blaze was reported on Monday morning from a house in Kings Heath, Birmingham, reported ITV. Two fire fighters were deployed to rescue the dog from the kitchen.

A group of fire fighters from the Billesley Fire Department phenomenally rescued Buster in half an hour using their latest animal respiratory equipment. 

Video footage released by the Billesley Fire Department showed firemen trying to revive the pup using a special oxygen mask while one of them lovingly comforted the dog. However Buster struggled to breathe.

Buster is seen blinking tiredly as if going in and out of consciousness. However much to everyone's relief, a subsequent video posted on Twitter shows the little pup wake up and gives a confused glance to the people who just saved his life and affectionately lick them. In return, he gets lots of pats for being so brave.
