PARK CITY, Utah — A pair of kittens were successfully rescued from a sewer line in Park City on Tuesday afternoon.
The incident began when a concerned citizen reported the distressing situation to the Park City Fire Department (PCFD). Engine 31 was dispatched to the scene to investigate. Upon arrival, it was determined that the kittens had entered the sewer line through a broken cap to the sewer cleanout.
The PCFD team enlisted the assistance of the Snyderville Basin camera truck to locate the stranded kittens in the sewer line. Using the camera equipment, they were able to pinpoint the feline duo’s location and carefully guide them towards a manhole, where they could be safely rescued from the sewer system.
Animal control officers from Summit County were on hand to take custody of the kittens, ensuring they receive the necessary care, treatment and most certainly a BATH!
The successful rescue operation was made possible thanks to the combined efforts of the concerned citizen, Park City Mountain Ski Patrol, Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District, Summit County Animal Control, and the dedicated personnel of PCFD Engine 31.
