Firefighters Hear Cries for Help, Save Parrots
"Firefighters responding to a house fire thought they heard the screams of people inside, but they were actually hearing parrots.
Emergency crews say the birds had been trained to issue a warning."
When the firefighters heard screams of "Fire" and "Help" emanating from the burning house, they risked their lives to enter the burning building.
I`m glad there weren`t any humans in the burning house, and I`m relieved the parrots are OK.
The heroic firefighters gave the birds oxygen; it`s heartwarming that the first responders treated their feathered patients with compassion.
Hmm, I`m considering exchanging my smoke detector for a parrot.
