“A puppy was stuck in the middle of a rim and was brought to the station by a local resident,” the Kern County Fire Department wrote on Facebook. “Firefighters used cooking oil and creative ingenuity to free the puppy.”

3. Firefighters were able to slip the puppy’s head out of the hole with the help of a little vegetable oil.
