North York Post - - Contents -

Toronto fire­fighter Mark Stoehr was one of more than 100 fire­fight­ers from across the city and as far afield as Wil­son and Duf­ferin who helped battle the six-alarm fire at the Bad­minton and Rac­quet Club near Yonge and St. Clair last month. But he also pro­vided one of the most last­ing im­ages.This photo of Stoehr res­cu­ing Os­borne the dog from a nearby build­ing tugged at heart strings and sent so­cial me­dia chan­nels into se­ri­ous swoon mode. Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg told Post City he was deeply proud of fire­fight­ers for go­ing above and be­yond that day. The com­mu­nity also came to­gether to help those dis­placed by the fire, and the Rosedale An­i­mal Shel­ter of­fered to house lo­cal pets un­til their own­ers were able to re­turn home.
