Santa Barbara County Fire Department firefighters rescued a dog that fell 75 feet from the More Mesa Bluffs in Santa Barbara on Sunday morning.

According to a tweet from the public information officer for the fire department, crews received initial reports of a dog that fell off a cliff at approximately 9:46 a.m.

Upon arrival, firefighters saw the dog stuck between 75-100 ft down the bluffs.

To rescue the dog, one of the first responders used a high-angle rope system to go over the side of the bluff, secure the dog and bring it to the bottom of the cliff.

Fire officials say the dog is not injured and is reunited with its "happy owner."
