Springfield firefighters save dog from Allen St. bridge ledge

Hampden County

Springfield firefighters performed what they’re calling “a successful rescue” after a dog ended up at the other side of a bridge ledge on Allen Street Thursday evening.

Fire department spokesman Dennis Leger told 22News crews were called to 1 Allen St. for a small dog who was on the other side of the bridge.

The bridge ledge is about a 40ft. drop to the Mill River.

The dog was successfully brought over to the other side.
