The department said the homeowner had attempted to contact Animal Services and the Humane Society, but ended up calling firefighters when neither group was able to come out to the location.

"Probationary Firefighter Hayley Denny donned personal protective equipment and carefully picked up the owlet. She climbed the ladder and successfully placed it back into the nest," LAFD representative Margaret Stewart told KTLA-TV.

The Instagram post included a photo of the owlet after being reunited with its siblings and parent.
