TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Firefighters say they found a dog unconscious inside a house fire on Missouri Avenue this morning and were able to save its life.

Hillsborough County Fire and Rescue officials say it broke out in the kitchen with a pot on a stove. Several people were inside at the time and got out alive.

When firefighters got there, the occupants told them a dog was still inside. They found the dog unconscious in one of the bedrooms, got it outside, and then paramedics gave it oxygen.  

Amazingly, the dog -- a pit bull -- was revived. The owner took it with them from the scene, firefighters said.

However, the bad news is the home. It was heavily damaged by smoke and flames.

A few occupants had to be treated for smoke inhalation, but everyone else was OK.
