Firefighters were able to rescue a local dog after it became wedged under a deck while chasing an animal.

According to Ben Pfeiffer of the Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD), firefighters were dispatched to Moorefield Lane in Cumberland County at 6:48 p.m. Thursday, May 27, for an animal rescue call.

Upon arriving at the residence, crews discovered a black lab which had become wedged under a deck while chasing a rabbit. The dog was stuck between the deck joists and could not back out due to the low ground clearance of the deck.
