bout firefighters rescuing a cat out of a tree, but last week’s rescue on Jackson Street was much more serious.
It was Tuesday evening when 911 dispatchers called out the Bedford Volunteer Fire Department. A small boy, approximately 5 years old, had climbed 30 feet into a tree. Once he got up in the tree, he couldn’t get back down. According to Kevin Musgrove, a lieutenant with the fire department, the boy had been in the tree for about 30 or 40 minutes.
“He was scared,” Musgrove commented.
