PHOENIX  — Firefighters came to the rescue of two pups trapped in a fast-moving apartment fire in Phoenix Monday.

Officials say crews from Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix were called to the fire near 48th Street and McDowell Road just before noon.

When firefighters arrived on scene, they found a large amount of smoke and fire coming from the second floor of the building.

Crews were able to gain quick control of the fire and contain it to just two units.

Firefighters say no one was home when the fire broke out, but crews did find two dogs that needed medical attention. Fire crews used a Fido Bag to save both dogs that firefighters say are expected to make a full recovery.
