On Saturday morning, crews with the Occoquan-Woodbridge-Lorton Volunteer Fire Department rescued a dog stuck under a garage after chasing a groundhog. Engine 512B, Engine 502B and Collapse 502 were called to assist Prince William Animal Control Officers after the dog found himself stuck approximately 15 feet under a garage slab, OWL said in a Facebook post. "Using a thermal imaging camera, the crew was able to locate the dog. Shovels and picks were used to enlarge the groundhog hole," OWL said. It took crews more than an hour to reach the dog, who had already been stuck in the tight spot several hours. "The dog was coaxed out, but was weary from the ordeal," OWL said. The owners took the pup to a local animal hospital for further evaluation.
