While the police are busy bullying people, the fire departments of this great country are showing they have what it takes to be your hero.

Over the weekend a fire broke out at a home in Lacey, Washington, and of course, the firefighters on duty responded quickly.

Luckily, all of the human residents of the home managed to get out before suffering any injuries.

But, just to be sure, the firefighters entered the house to check for anyone who may have been left behind. That's when they ran across a family of hamsters, who appeared to be suffering from smoke inhalation.

So they rushed the hamsters outside, and what happened next has taken the social media world by storm.

Some of the firefighters, wanting to safe the hamsters, began pumping oxygen to the hamsters using a tiny, hamster sized oxygen mask.

Okay, so it wasn't a real hamster sized oxygen mask. Do those even exist? Instead, one of the firefighters noticed that the ends of some of the oxygen tubes looked like little, hamster sized oxygen mask, and it obviously worked.

They firefighters managed to save both of the adult hamsters and two of the three babies.

Four out of five is pretty darn good considering this has probably never been done before.
