BUCKEYE, AZ (CBS5) -

Two children are recovering after a pit bull bit them Wednesday afternoon, Buckeye police said.

The children were playing with the family dog in their backyard in the 100 block of Sixth Avenue West at about 5:40 p.m.

At some point, they attempted to pull a chew toy from the dog's mouth when the animal began biting them, said Buckeye police Lt. Jared Griffith.

One child suffered serious arm injuries and was airlifted to a local hospital. The other child received less serious bites, Griffith said.

Animal Control placed the pit bull in a temporary quarantine.

Buckeye police detectives are conducting an ongoing investigating.
