A four-year-old basset hound was rescued from a North Seattle drainage pipe Thursday morning by Seattle firefighters and Seattle Public Utility workers.
According to the Seattle Fire Department, a concerned dog owner called 911 after his pet crawled 30 feet inside a drainage pipe in the 12800 block of Corliss Avenue North.
Four firefighters arrived at the location and worked with the owner to get the dog out.
Officials with the fire department said firefighters dug through several feet of soil and made a hole in the middle of the pipe to lift the dog out.
Crews with SPU used a camera on a remote vehicle to coax the dog toward the hole in the pipe.
After about 90 minutes, firefighters pulled out the dog and reunited her with the owner.
