LA firefighters rescue 2 cats and cocker spaniel

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles firefighters have had a busy day saving furry friends from fire and a steep cliff.

Spokeswoman Katherine Main says firefighters were able to save a fluffy cocker spaniel that was stuck on a steep cliff behind a home in the Hollywood Hills Wednesday.

Main says the pup was missing since Monday and a nearby resident saw the dog and tried to save it, but had to call the Fire Department for help.

A rescuer was able to reach the dog, feed it and then lower down to the ground with it by rope.

Firefighters also saved two cats from a house fire in the Mar Vista area earlier Wednesday, and one of the felines was given oxygen to help recover.
