A brood of ducklings trapped in a storm drain on Federal road in Brookfield have been rescued by firefighters. Both Brookfield fire companies and the police department were dispatched around 4:30 yesterday afternoon and were told that eight ducklings were trapped along three drainage grates. Brookfield firefighters removed the grates and climbed down into the storm drain.

The ducklings were handed over to the Police Department, who brought them to the nearby creek to be released back to their mother.
