Dowagiac A Michiana fire department now has a new tool to save pet's lives, in case of a fire. Thursday, the Sister Lakes Fire Department in Dowagiac Michigan equipped each truck with pet-specific oxygen masks.

The masks are cylindrical, to fit snuggly over a pet's face.

It was all made possible through a donation from local businesses. The donation was made as part of a national effort to equip every fire department in the U.S. with the masks.

LaPorte County fire departments received mask donations last month. Firefighters there say it makes a big difference, since they pull more pets from burning homes than people.
