Chattanooga firefighters, along with Tennessee State Park rangers and Chattanooga police, spent part of Saturday afternoon rescuing a mother duck and her eight ducklings from a storm drain.

Firefighters were contacted by a local business saying the duck and her ducklings were trapped in the drain. After 30 minutes, responders pulled all nine out of the drain. 

A local animal rescue service took the ducks and will treat the mother duck, which was hit by a car.
