FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Maybe they needed somewhere warm to escape the blizzard, but for a pair of raccoons that crashed through the ceiling of a home this weekend, their respite from the record cold was short-lived.

Engine 8 of the Fort Worth Fire Department shared images of the furry fiasco via Facebook, saying: “Your FWFD is always on its toes because we never know what the next call may be.”

Typically, once a wild animal like a racoon falls, chances are they will have a very hard time getting back up into the ceiling. As you can see from the photos, both animals appear panicked and anti-social despite their party crashing ways. It isn’t ideal, even for highly trained firefighters to get stuck in a small room with the stressed out animals. Bites are a real concern, and then a painful rabies shot is necessary.

Despite the challenge though, brave crews were able to safely remove the animals and help with securing the home for the owners.
