NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A pit bull terrier puppy rescued from an apartment fire in Queens is being nursed back to health at an emergency veterinary hospital.

Firefighters found several puppies inside the burning building at 65-24 Parsons Boulevard.

Members of the FDNY rescued the female American pit bull terrier from a fire on the sixth floor of the Pomonok Houses in Queens and brought her to a BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital in Queens for emergency treatment.

The puppy is believed to be about two months old and is being treated for smoke inhalation. The puppy’s hair was singed in the fire.

Fire officials said several other puppies died in the fire and two other injured puppies were taken to a different local animal hospital.

If no owner comes forward to claim the pit bull terrier by the time medical treatment is completed, BluePearl will try to find the puppy a home.
