Jody Hagemann, spokeswoman for the fire department, said the call came in from a private residence, and the rescue only took a few minutes once firefighters got on scene.
“I think the dog was a husky,” she said. “Personnel had to get geared up and go down into the hole to check on the safety of the dog.”
The dog was taken out of the hole unharmed and given to animal control officers, the fire department said. Even though the dog was believed to be a stray, Hagemann said animal control would likely look to see if the dog has an owner.
