DULUTH, Minn. -

A 4-month-old puppy that was found unconscious in a burning Wisconsin building is being treated at a Minnesota veterinary clinic after firefighters were able to revive it.

A Duluth News Tribune report says the dog is named Rush and appears to be a beagle. It was found unconscious by firefighters who responded to a report of a fire in a Superior building Friday evening.

Firefighters brought Rush outside and administered oxygen. The puppy regained consciousness and was taken to a Duluth clinic.

Battalion Chief Vern Johnson says Rush was doing well Saturday afternoon. But he says the puppy is still being watched because effects of smoke inhalation can take 36 hours to develop.

The building residents weren't home at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.
