ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- St. Johns County Fire Rescue responded to an unusual request for service Sunday morning.

A citizen walking along County Road 210 West spotted a young deer lying near the road, according to a Facebook post from SJCFR.

Eng. Jerod Burghart and Capt. Robbie McQuaig responded and checked the deer for injuries and found none, however the fawn would not move on its own. 

Fearing the fawn could be struck by a car, Eng. Burghart moved the deer to a safer location.
