Firefighters in Sevier County, Tennessee save a Box Turtle when her home burned down around her.

There were two turtles in the house when it caught fire. One was able to escape, but this poor girl was found very close to the burning home. She was hot to the touch and frothing at the mouth when the firefighters recovered her. They had her in an oxygen mask for about 20 minutes, until she opened her eyes and began to move around.

    Oh goodness! I am so glad this turtle was saved! One of my worst fears is being in a house fire and none of my reptile...
