Cat Rescue

A phone call to HQ fire station prompted a response to the 300 block of Black Ave for a cat needing rescued. Engine 1-1 and Asst. Chief 1 responded non-emergency, where they located a cat that had slid down a 6 foot pipe and was unable to get itself out. The pipe was partially covered by pieces of concrete, giving the cat no other way to get out. Crews removed several pieces of concrete to gain access to the cat, able to free it. Crews operated for a little over 30 minutes before clearing the scene.
