A fire in an apartment building in McMinnville, Oregon, on Monday night trapped two pit bulls on a second-floor balcony in billowing smoke.
The first dog climb up onto the railings and balanced itself hesitantly before leaping to safety. The second dog jumped from the deck as soon as a firefighter removed some of the railings to free it.
Both dogs survived and the Red Cross is providing aid to residents who were displaced. The cause of the fire was determined by investigators to be unattended cooking
