Jackson firefighters help rescue puppy from storm drain

JACKSON, Tenn. — It was a happy ending Friday morning for a scared puppy stuck in a storm drain in east Jackson.

A Muse Street resident heard the puppy crying while taking out her trash. She traced the crying to a storm drain at the corner of her yard.

The Jackson Fire Department rescued the puppy by removing the grate covering the drain. A firefighter then climbed down to bring the frightened dog to the surface.

Neighbors said they don’t know who the puppy belongs to, but they said he looks healthy.
