Firefighters rescued a pit bull puppy Sunday night from a sink hole from a collapsed septic tank in Calimesa, Cal Fire officials said.

The trapped dog was reported at 8:18 p.m. Sunday in the 200 block of Myrtlewood Drive, south of Avenue L in Calimesa, Melody Hendrickson of Cal Fire-Riverside County said in a statement.

Four engine crews with 18 firefighters responded, Hendrickson said.

The puppy was trapped 15 to 20 feet down in a confined space, and the technical rescue was declared complete at 10:12 p.m., Hendrickson said. No injuries were reported.

"The dog was an 8-12 month old black Pit Bull, weighing approximately 25-30 lbs," Cal Fire officials said in an update Monday. "Once the dog was rescued, it was transported to a night holding kennel at the Beaumont Police Department. The dog was unharmed."
