Chattanooga firefighters got an unusual call around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in Hixson.
Bella, a long-haired, toy Dachshund, got into the house's attic to chase a squirrel. While chasing it around the attic, Bella fell through an opening into an interior wall between the den and master bedroom. Bella's owners could hear her yelping in the wall and could not figure out a way to get her out, so they called the fire department.
Captain Andy Blevins and his firefighters with Engine 11 brought in a ladder and used a saw to cut an opening in the wall.
Seconds later, SFF Shawn Roach was able to pull Bella out. He was unsure what the dog might do, so he handed it off quickly to Firefighter Brandon McCully, who was waiting below to catch it. Bella was not injured and the owners were extremely grateful for the firefighters' efforts.
