Seattle firefighters on Tuesday freed a dog trapped inside a motor home that was perched on the edge of an embankment in the Mount Baker neighborhood.

By 1:15 p.m., a towing company was able to pull the motor home up the hill and haul it away.

Police said an issue with the vehicle’s emergency brake might have caused it to roll over the embankment. No injuries were reported, and people were not in the vehicle when firefighters arrived, said Seattle Fire Department spokesman Corey Orvold.

The dog, a female pit-bull pup named “KK,” has been reunited with her owners, a homeless couple who lives inside the motor home.

The incident, which happened near 28th Avenue South and South Bayview Street, held up traffic for several hours in the area as officials worked to free the pup.
