Two Dogs Escape Burning Building By Jumping Off Balcony

When firefighters arrived at an apartment fire in McMinnville, Oregon on Monday night, they found two pit bulls trapped on a second-floor balcony. The first dog managed to climb up onto the railings and balance itself before finally realizing it needed to jump. The second dog was also able to jump off the deck once a firefighter removed some railings.

Both dogs survived and the Red Cross is helping aid those who have been displaced by the fire. Investigators determined the cause of the flames was unattended cooking.

The incredible dog-jumping event was captured on film by Dan Balderrain and the McMinnville Fire Department and—WARNING—you will feel intense emotions when viewing the complete slideshow.
