Family's Heartwarming Discovery Of Dog They Thought Had Died In Fire

Family's Heartwarming Discovery Of Dog They Thought Had Died In Fire

"They had to drive through walls of flames and across a burning wooden bridge to get to mark west springs road and to safety", Beckyjean Widen, the couple's daughter, wrote in a Facebook post.

But Widen's brother, Jack Weaver, and her husband, Patrick Widen, hiked up three miles to the property they saw Izzy joyously run up to them in surprise.

The Weaver family had returned to their home in Santa Rosa for the first time since a ferocious wildfire destroyed their Northern California neighborhood in the middle of the night, CBS reported.

The family lost everything, but did not want to give up on finding Izzy. "My brother and husband were determined to try to get back to my parent's property to see if by some miracle Izzy survived". They grabbed a few things, got in the auto and drove through the fire to get to safety. "So our goal is to treat them, to remove the tissue that is too burned to be saved and to provide them with pain medication, bandaging".

The two men were recording the scene to show Jack and Beckyjean's parents and captured the heartwarming reunion.

It is toward the end of the video when one of the men can be heard saying the "tractor has made it, the tractor is totally fine" which is when they scream in relief, catching a glimpse of Izzy.

Another said: "I've always made it my mission to tell every American I meet that we hate James Corden in the UK". But James Corden also had people supporting him over the jibes. "I really wouldn't make the movie without him".

"No singed hair, no burned paws".

Their whistles and calls for Izzy were met with silence - until they turned a corner. She was dehydrated and very exhausted, but other than that she was ideal.

The video was posted on Facebook and has gone viral with over 1.5 million views, over 33,000 reactions, and more than 16,000 shares. They took her to a vet right after they found her, and she was checked out.

The deadliest fire in California history left "some 100,000 people forced from their homes, including 3,000 evacuated on Saturday from the city of Santa Rosa, and another 250" from the city of Sonoma.

"When she came exploding out, that was an incredibly gratifying moment", Jack Weaver told NBC News, adding, "I was so excited that I dropped the phone".
