Firefighters, who for years have rescued frightened cats in tall trees, were called upon to rescue a 100 pound dog from a rooftop in Elk Grove on Tuesday afternoon.
The dog climbed into a treehouse and from there jumped onto the roof of a single-story house on La Nuez Drive near Elk Grove Boulevard and Elk Grove Florin Road. A call was put into Cosumnes Fire Department firefighters to lend a hand in getting the pooch off the roof.
After they arrived at the scene around 1 p.m., firefighters worked quickly to get the dog down to the ground in short order. There was no obvious injury to the dog, according to firefighters.
