According to a report in the Baltimore Sun, the firefighters received a call about a yelping animal stuck in a storm drain, and they immediately responded, donning their suits to rescue the red fox from where he was trapped.

Although the men joked on Facebook that they wanted to keep the adorable kit, they were actually calling Animal Control and "several local and regional veterinarians" to try to find a place that would take good care of their charge.

The next morning, Pierce got to ride in the fire truck again and was dropped off at the veterinary hospital, where he will be treated until he is well enough to be transported to the Phoenix Wildlife Center.
