Transcript for Video captures Atlanta police saving of a dog found during a building fire
Finally tonight, America strong. And the effort to save a dog. And tonight, the new question here, where and when will he go home? The call went out to Atlanta first responders, an apartment building believed to be vacant burning down. Atlanta police officer Robert Winkler arriving at the scene, his body cam rolling. Approaching the building, at first making sure there was no one there, but through the thick smoke, using just his flashlight, suddenly seeing a dog motionless on the ground. Overcome by smoke. Officer Winkler grabs him by the collar and pulls him away from the flames. And then, a second officer carries him to safety. Past the fire trucks, the dog in his arms. Setting him down on the sidewalk, emt and other officers gathering to help. Paramedic Jesse Johnson giving him oxygen, comforting him as he comes back. Look at that! Reporter: The dog starts shaking from the cold and officer Amy Soldner wraps her coat around him. He stayed overnight at a veterinarian hospital. He is okay, but no one called to claim him. He's now been given the name smoky, up for adoption at Fulton county animal services, and tonight, they tell us, the phones already lighting up. Just as smoky did with that team helping him. And we of course will keep you posted when smoky finds a home. I gather it will be real soon. Thanks for watching here on a Wednesday night. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you tomorrow. Good???
