Oct. 17—Firefighters in Alabama rescued a family’s cat — and a teenager — from a tree over the weekend.

The teen had climbed the tree on Saturday in an effort to save the “beloved” cat, according to a Facebook post from the County Line Volunteer Fire Department.

But, instead, she ended up getting trapped in the tree along with the cat.

Firefighters and first responders from other agencies responded and got the cat and the teen down from the tree without any injuries, the fire department said.

Photos posted to Facebook showed firefighters using a fire truck’s ladder to reach the part of the tree where the two were stuck and safely bringing the cat back down to the ground.

No other information about the rescue had been released as of Sunday afternoon.

County Line is about 27 miles north of Birmingham.
