Salt Lake City firefighters made an unusual rescue this week, when an iguana ended up in a 50-foot tree.

The pet's owner called the fire department, after the reptile crawled out a window, across a balcony, and into the tree, from a 5th story apartment.

Fire crews spent a little under an hour rescuing the iguana.

They say it was easier than many cat rescues, because this pet didn't claw or bite them.
