Puppy rescued after getting stuck in Texas sinkhole

An Amazon delivery driver in Florida saved the lives of three Boston Terrier puppies, after calling 911 when she discovered smoke seeping from a home along her delivery route.

Due to the driver's swift response, firefighters in the area were notified and extinguished the flames before they could spread.

Additionally, the department was able to rescue the puppies trapped inside.

The homeowners were not at home during the time of the fire.

The puppies were treated for smoke inhalation and revived by firefighters, as noted by the Columbia County Fire Rescue. The firefighters contained the fire to the room where it all began.

"Thank you to the Amazon driver who noticed the smoke and called 911," the department said in a Facebook post.

"Since the homeowner was not at home at the time, she saved the home and the puppies' lives!"
