Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A British firefighter's body camera was rolling when rescuers pulled a puppy from a burning building and used a pet-sized oxygen mask to save his life.

The West Midlands Fire Service posted a video to Facebook showing a firefighter's body camera's perspective of the rescue Monday in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham.

The firefighters find an unconscious puppy suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation and rush the dog outside, where they use a pet-sized oxygen mask to revive the canine.

"CUTENESS ALERT!!! This little pup was overcome by smoke after a kitchen fire in Kings Heath, Birmingham. Fortunately our fire engines now carry oxygen kits for pets, some of which have been paid by charitable donations, so he was quickly back on all four paws," the Facebook post said.
