CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Chattanooga firefighters came to the rescue Tuesday of two men stuck atop a Waffle House sign.

CFD's Ladder 1 was pressed into service for the rescue, after their truck's cherry picker failed, standing the men 40 feet above the ground.

Chattanooga Fire Department tweeted : 

Chattanooga FireDept @ChattFireDept Rescue @ Waffle House. 2 men stuck 40 ft high when their truck failed. #ChattFire sent Ladder 1 to get them down. 

The men were brought safely down from the sign at the 23rd Street Waffle House by firefighters.

There's no word on why the truck failed.
