Firefighters Hear Cries for Help, Save Parrots

By Robert Paul Reyes

"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.
