    Firefighters are known for rescuing humans from burning buildings and cats from trees.

    But this weekend, Oakland rescued a pigeon that was trapped in wires at the Fruitvale BART station.

    The Oakland fire union tweeted and Facebooked the daring feat, showing video of a firefighter on engine 18 climbing up a ladder, untangling the bird from the wires, and saying “there you go buddy,” as the pigeon flew off into the sky.
