NOBLESVILLE — It's duck season for the Noblesville Fire Department.

For the second time in two days Friday, firefighters went beyond the call of duty and rescued a brood of ducklings.

Ten ducklings were found Friday morning in a storm drain near the Hamilton Town Center at 14098 Bergen Boulevard.

After their human rescuers squeezed into a tight space a few feet underground, the baby ducks were placed into a bucket and brought to safety.

Meanwhile on Thursday, another group of ducklings was found in a storm drain near the Qdoba at 17047 Mercantile Boulevard in Noblesville. They were taken to a nearby pond and reunited with their mother and siblings.
