A fawn is OK thanks to Milford emergency crews who saved it from an in-ground pool on Tuesday.

On Tuesday afternoon, Milford Fire dispatchers received a request to help Milford Animal Control rescue a fawn from a collapsed in-ground pool on the west side of town.

So, Engine 3 and the shift commander responded to the scene to assist animal control and police and found a trapped baby deer. 

They managed to corral it to safety and the little animal was not harmed.

The fawn has been taken to an animal rehabilitation center in Enfield as a precaution.

Capt. Kyle Brotherton captured these photos, which show Firefighter Frank Murphy and Lt. AJ Murphy during the rescue.
