Firefighters in Columbia, South Carolina, found an unresponsive cat in a house fire Wednesday. They brought the cat outside and began doing chest compressions and gave him oxygen with a pet oxygen mask that was donated to the department.

The cat regained consciousness after several minutes. The crew nicknamed the gray cat Smokey, but they soon found his grateful owner and discovered the cat’s name is Soldier.

Soldier is recovering.

Columbia Fire Department takes it serious[ly] when we save any life, whether that’s two legged or four legged,” said a fire department spokesman.
