The tenacity is admirable, but it's a hamster!
Two crews used a chocolate-covered camera and a vacuum cleaner to try and locate missing Fudgie at six-year-old Zoe Appleby's home in Dunbar.
Fire crews spent five hours trying to recover the pet after it scuttled down a hole in the kitchen floor.
But, the hamster, who was being looked after for a friend during the holidays, is still refusing to come out.
In the search for Fudgie, firefighters took the family cooker and gas pipes to pieces. They also dropped a mini-camera coated with chocolate underneath the floorboards. They then hoped to suck out the furry rodent using a vacuum cleaner with a sock over the nozzle.
