CHILE — A mother dog saved her nine puppies from burning alive in a forest fire in Chile by digging a deep hole and placing her babies inside where they were later found untouched by the flames, according to rescuers. Volunteers located the puppies following a massive forest fire in Valparaiso last week, CNN reported. It took about an hour for rescuers to locate all of the puppies and lift them out of the deep hole, video from Megavision showed.

They were reunited with their mother and are all expected to be OK.
