Firefighters rescue scared dog from California house fire

New helmet camera footage shows California firefighters rescuing a dog from a home, engulfed in flames. 

When fire crews arrived in the early morning hours on Wednesday, firefighters searched the Sacramento home for victims. 

What they found was a scared dog hiding from the blaze. 

The dog was pulled from its hiding spot in a back bedroom and carried to safety. 

The occupants of the home all got out safely and the dog was reunited with her happy owner on the sidewalk outside. 

Fire officials said a working smoke detector played a big role in getting everyone to safety. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
