Firefighters from Clallam County District 3 and the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office came to the rescue after a dog fell off a bluff near Port Angeles and got stuck.

The black lab  fell from the top of a bluff at 468 Gehrke Road and ended up mid-wall about 30 feet from the top. It was another 30 feet from falling to the beach below. 

Crews attached ropes to a truck and rappelled down the hillside and reached the dog, who was reunited with its grateful owner.
