CLEARWATER - Rescuing kittens from trees is so passé. Clearwater firefighters added a new twist to the age-old story last week when they rescued four 6-day-old ducklings from a storm drain in a downtown parking lot.

Engine 45A firefighters Lt. Nate Brooks, Michael Cannarelli, Jeff Roberts and Greg Record answered the call April 6 when Clearwater resident Trisha Kirby appeared at their door, seeking help.
