Sylacauga firefighter proves to be big hero in a small way


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a Sylacauga firefighter saved  – a life not human.

When firefighters went to work Friday morning, they were expecting a normal day (that is if you can have a normal day as a firefighter). However, they got a bit of a unique surprise when a Sylacauga resident came to the Sylacauga Fire Department with her puppy in danger.

Her furry friend lodged its head in a tin can the day after Thanksgiving. Firefighter Scott Kines said he helped free the puppy by pulling its head out of the can.

The puppy returned home with its owner safe and sound.
