(KTLA) — Firefighters rescued a large dog trapped between two buildings in California on Wednesday, officials said.
Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded to Tujunga’s call at about 2:48 p.m.
“Firefighters noticed a trapped dog while completing a medical response nearby.” LAFD said in an Instagram post.
Fire officials say the dog, named Zigi, is believed to have sneaked into the narrow space between the two buildings to escape the sound of the fireworks and was likely trapped there overnight. .
“Jiggy was stuck there pretty well,” said Jiggy owner Barry Coben. “We pulled her up, but then she went back under her. I thought she was going to lose her. She brings me so much happiness. I wish her doesn’t deserve to die inside the walls.”
A video of Gigi shot after the rescue showed the dog looking happy and unmarked from the accident.
“We haven’t had much experience with this unique and complex type of incident,” said LAFD Firefighter Jeffrey Sambar. “As a dog owner myself, I know that dogs and other animals can be very frightened or frightened of firecrackers.”
Coben said he was very grateful to the firefighters.
“I had tears in my eyes, but it felt great. I really appreciate the fire department. He did it,” he said.
