According to local reports, the fire erupted as a result of a car bomb that was set off near Amanda's home in the southern city of Temuco. The dog made several trips into the blazing home, removing a total of five puppies from the fire and setting them down on one of the fire trucks.
Sadly, Amparo's burns were too severe and she did not survive. The others, however, are expected to pull through.
