Incident Narrative

Concerned neighbors in Ridgecrest called emergency responders for a dog stuck in a wrought iron gate. Engine #74 responded and the crew was able to free the dog, utilizing the jaws of life. Unfortunately, the dog's paws were raw and bloodied from trying to paw itself free on the concrete underneath the gate. The dog's owners were out of town, so the neighbors took in the dog to care for it.
