If you saw emergency workers on 1st Ave South near Fred Meyer on Tuesday afternoon, June 28, 2022, that was because they were responding to a “duck rescue call.”
“A mom duck with six ducklings were walking down 1st Ave South when four baby ducks fell through the grate into a storm drain,” King County Fire District No. 2 said in a Tweet.
Emergency crews from Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department E328 and A328 crews – with assistance from City of Burien Public Works and C.A.R.E.S. of Burien Animal Control – were able to successfully rescue all four baby ducklings in the 14300 block of 1st Ave South (map below).
