Firefighters Kermit to frog rescue
Firefighters doused the flames at a North Texas house - and made sure its lone resident didn't croak.
The Fort Worth crew, sent to a blaze in Westworth Village, searched the house and found no humans while bringing the blaze under control.
Then the owners' daughter, Jamie Wilson, arrived and asked firefighters to look for a missing occupant - the family frog.
Intrepid firefighter Craig Tipton hopped back inside, located the unscathed pet amphibian in its glass container and reunited it with a relieved Ms Wilson.
Battalion chief Richard Harrison said firefighters have saved many dogs and cats, but it was the first time he recalled a frog rescue.
Authorities are investigating the fire that caused about 60,000 dollars' (£37,000) damage.
