HOBOKEN - Firefighters in New Jersey have rescued a dog that strolled onto a third floor ledge to catch some rays from the sun.

Hoboken spokesman Juan Melli tells NJ.com the dog, Skipper, broke through a screen on Tuesday morning, prompting firefighters to swing into action to get the dog down safely.

Officials say Skipper wasn't aggressive and no firefighters were injured in the rescue.
