VIDEO: Firefighters rescue dog from central Fresno canal

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno firefighters came to the rescue after a dog fell on some rough times Sunday.

Video shared by the fire department shows crews from Engine 5 working to get the pup to safety after he got stuck in a canal near First and McKinley Avenues.

Firefighters were able to help him by ladder. Once they successfully got their new four-legged friend out of the water, they comforted him before turning him over to Animal Control.

There is no word yet if the pup has an owner.
