Firefighters Make Rescue After Mistaking Parrot's Calls For Help For An Elderly Woman

Earlier this month, firefighters in Middleton, Idaho, heard a voice from inside a house calling, "Help, fire! Help, fire!" After rushing inside expecting to find an elderly woman in peril, the firefighters were shocked to find something very different -- a parrot. Nancy Redd got the scoop on the surprising rescue mission from Victor Islas, the community relations officer for Treasure Valley Emergency Medical Service System, during Monday's episode of HuffPost Live's Pet Show.
