HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA) — Most calls involving a snake in the house involve removal, not a rescue.

But that’s where the Huntington Beach Fire Department found itself Wednesday – in the unusual position of rescuing a stuck snake.

Fire crews helped rescue the pet snake that could not slither its way out of a drain, which was later removed from a bathtub to free the reptile.

No one – including the snake – was injured during the rescue.
