A Muskegon Firefighter helped to save an entire family Wednesday evening!


Not only were the homeowners saved from the blaze, but firefighter Scott Hemmelsbach made sure the whole family got out safely! Scott got the families dog and litter of 7 puppies out of the blaze. Scott told Mlive.com...

"You lose so much in a fire, it's nice to still have something to hold onto, they're part of the family."

The puppies are expected to be fine, and were treated with oxygen onsite.

This is not the first time Scott has saved a families pet. In the past, Scott has saved a python, a fawn, and a bird. Scott stated...

"It's extremely rewarding, because I love animals and know they can mean so much to the family,"

Muskegon is lucky to have this hero on his team!
