DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton Fire Department can now better treat animals at fire scenes.

Invisible Fence donated a dozen sets of oxygen masks that are specifically designed for animals.

Each of the department’s 12 stations will receive a set.

The masks come in three different sizes, so firefighters can determine which size will best fit their four-legged patient.

Dayton firefighters removed six injured dogs from two fires during a 24-hour period in March 2015.

They say the fire department hopes by adding the masks to its inventory, it can cut down on the number of pets that perish in fires.
