LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A flooded property on Hwy 84 East near Laurel has now resulted in a dog rescue effort.

The dog is safe on a ledge, but Emergency Management has sent a boat to the property to help rescue the animal.

Fire fighters were able to put on wading boots and waded through the water to the animal.
