San Francisco-- Firefighters train to rescue people and animals from fires. Some stations even have oxygen masks for cats and dogs.
But, Monday night, crews rescued an animal and it's not the kind you're probably thinking. In this case it was pig.
Crews were called to a one-alarm fire around 9:30 p.m. in the 800 block of South 46th Street in the Richmond area of San Francisco.
Battalion Chief Merlin Turner told CBS San Francisco that when firefighters arrived, the woman who lives in the house was already outside but told them her 200-pound pig was still in the home.
Emergency responders were able to get inside and remove the pot-bellied pet. Turner said the pig was not injured.
Investigators said the fire caused about $70,000 in damage, mostly to the back of the house, and left the home uninhabitable, Turner said.
