Fresno firefighters are being called heroes Friday after saving a puppy's life.
Firefighters were called out to the southwest Fresno home around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday for a puppy that had its head stuck in a muffler.
It took nearly an hour for firefighters to slowly cut and spread the 30-pound muffler with hydraulic rescue tools to free the puppy.
The puppy was able to break free after firefighters covered its head with soap.
The puppy, who doesn't have a name yet, has found a home, firefighters said.
