MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. - Firefighters reunited some ducklings with their mother Sunday after they fell through a storm grate near the Maple Valley Fire Department.

The three firefighters fished the ducks out of the storm drain using a bucket and a net.

The firefighters then returned the ducklings to their mother and warned them to stay away from the street in the future.

On the department's Facebook page, a video shows a duckling swim to its mother after being rescued.

"In the fire service, you never know when you'll have the opportunity to save a life," another post on the department's page reads.

Watch the duck and its mother reunite in the video below.
