A puppy inside a cage at an Ohio park was set on fire last weekend — and investigators are still looking for those responsible for the heartless act.

The dog, who survived the horrifying ordeal, was found by firefighters at Walnut Hill Park in Columbus just after noon on Sunday, authorities said.

When members of the Columbus Division of Fire first arrived, they noticed the burning remnants of a plastic cage underneath a tree.

The firefighters then spotted the dog running around the park. The pooch had black plastic melted onto her back, authorities said.

The puppy was treated, and subsequently adopted, by staff at the Diley Hill Animal Medical Center and “is doing remarkably well,” according to the Columbus Division of Fire.
