COLUMBUS — A south central Indiana fire department has used its new ice-rescue equipment to pluck out a golden retriever that fell through the ice on a lake.The Republic reports says the rescue of the 8-year-old dog named Nala came Tuesday afternoon after more than a year of training by the Columbus Fire Department with the equipment.

Columbus public safety spokesman Matt Myers says Nala and another dog wandered out onto frozen Tipton Lake when the ice collapsed about 35 feet from shore. The other dog managed to climb out and get to shore but Nala remained in the water.

Rescue crews from a nearby fire station arrived a short time later and completed Nala's rescue within 10 minutes.
