Firefighter Erin Yoder covered the female Whitetail Deer with a blanket and Firefighter Adam Silla used a hydraulic rescue tool to pry the fence away from her.

Once the fence railing was separated, Captain Matt Casper lifted the deer out from the fence.

After a few moments, the deer ran to safety.

Firefighters then fixed the fence for the homeowner.
