The Modesto Fire Department has released dramatic footage and 911 audio from a massive Valentine's Day apartment fire.

A firefighter's body cam captures a woman dropping her dogs from a second-story window into a dumpster below, which was placed by the firefighters. The animals were unharmed.

The incredible footage shows firefighters scaling a ladder to save the woman and her daughter, who were trapped in their second-floor bathroom.

No one was killed in the blaze, but at least 20 people were left homeless. Investigators estimate that $500,000 in damage was caused by the fire.
