Horse Orange County firefighters rescued a horse whose back leg became trapped in a hole near a Trabuco Canyon home Tuesday morning.

Firefighters received a call about 10:30 a.m. that the horse was stuck after one of its back legs fell in a hole in the 19000 block of Live Oak Canyon Road, a more rural area of the county, spokesman Marc Stone said.

Crews tranquilized the horse and were able to free the animal in about an hour. The animal was up and running around about 10 minutes after it was freed, Stone said.
