Animal Rescue – Lees Ridge Rd

On Friday, December 2nd units from the WVFC and Fauquier County were alerted to a below grade rescue of a horse trapped in a swimming pool. Crews arrived to find a horse in a in-ground swimming pool that was unable to get out.  Crews quickly drained the pool.  The Little Fork Large Animal Technical Rescue Team with help from a veterinarian and WVFC personnel safely removed the horse from the pool.  All fire department personnel cleared the scene after about three and a half hours. The horse suffered minor injuries, but was thought to be in a good condition after a preliminary evaluation.
