BOYCEVILLE, Wisconsin (WEAU) -- A small Wisconsin fire and rescue department has three new members following a weekend barn fire.

Boyceville Fire and Ambulance crew members are nursing three piglets back to health after saving the tiny porkers from the fire.

The three piglets were pulled from the burning barn, but they didn't make it out unharmed.

"One of them was breathing very loudly and heavily and using extra muscles to breathe," said EMT Tonya Schutts.

Crews gave the pigs oxygen and were able to save them.

"They've gotten some breathing treatments throughout the night one is getting a low dose of pain medication," said Schutts.
