A team of Cloverdale firefighters went above and beyond on Thursday when they freed a feathered friend from a tight spot.

The Surrey Fire Fighters Association posted a video to their Facebook page, captured by local freelance photographer Mike Mac, that shows “Captain Bruce” scaling a ladder and freeing the bird — who flies away, seemingly unscathed.
