PERRY HALL - In an intense rescue operation today, two dogs were saved after being trapped underground at the site of the recently razed Perry Hall Community Hall on Gerst Rd.

According to the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company, Engine 201 from the Baltimore County Fire Department responded to reports of two missing dogs believed to be stuck underground around noon on Tuesday.

After arriving on the scene, firefighters confirmed that two dogs were trapped underground. By 12:30 p.m., firefighters had freed the first dog. However, the second dog remained stuck approximately 30 feet down an old sewer pipe.

To facilitate the more complex extraction, Kingsville Volunteer Fire Company Squad 483 was called to assist at 12:35 p.m. Only five minutes later, Baltimore County Fire Department Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) units from Texas Station 17 in Cockeysville were also dispatched to join the rescue mission.

A community member with a backhoe was involved in the rescue efforts as well, according to the White Marsh VFC.

By 2:00 p.m., the concerted efforts of the rescue teams paid off as the second dog was successfully brought to safety.
