Officials rescue a dog stranded on ice in Ayer

AYER, MA (WHDH) - Ayer Fire Department rescued a dog that was trapped on ice on Thursday.

Crews responded to a call from a business on Bligh Street, around 1 p.m., for a dog through ice behind the business’ building.

When officials arrived, they found the small dog on the ice a short distance from the shore.

There was open water between the shore and where the dog was, so one of the responders could enter the water.

The man, Captain Tim Johnston, grabbed the dog and brought him safely back to land.

Fire Officials are reminding everyone that the ice in town is not safe to walk on at this time.
