I'm glad the cat finally got out of the tree. I would definitely say this was a hard news story. I can't see any reason the fire department would not help. They could have at least contacted some other authorities for her or gave her some idea who to call. Sure it is just an animal, but they matter, too. Maybe there are some things the owner can do to deter the cat from climbing trees. It is worth looking into.
