KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Every member of a family is important - even the family pet.

Olathe firefighters took that to heart Monday when they rescued a dog from a house fire.

The fire happened around 11:40 a.m. near 115th Terrace and Northwood Drive.

The blaze began in the garage after fire pit ashes were discarded in a plastic trash cart, according to investigators.

All of the humans involved were uninjured.

A video shows firefighters carrying out a dog in a medical cone from the front door while others work on the flames coming from the garage.

There is no word on the condition of the dog.
