BROOKFIELD, Conn. — A Brookfield Police Officer saved a hot dog from an even hotter car last week, accrding to a Facebook post from the department.

"It may not be August anymore, and the nights are certainly cooler, but those are no reasons to leave your animals locked in your car," Brookfield police said in a Facebook post.

Last week, the police department was alerted by an employee at a local business of a dog locked in a vehicle.

It was 80 degrees outside, but the temperature was recorded at 114 degrees inside the vehicle — with the windows cracked.

"Think about your pets, leave them home!" Brookfield police said.
