3 bear cubs rescued from dumpster. Matt O'Donnell reports during Action News Mornings on October 3, 2018.

Three bear cubs had to be rescued from their midnight dumpster dive, and the entire incident was caught on camera.

It happened at a convenient place, right outside a fire station in Reno, Nevada.

Firefighters woke up to the noise of a garbage bin tipping over on Saturday night.

The firefighters used a long pole to help open the garbage bin, so the three bears could escape and run back into the woods.
