RENO, Nevada (WABC) -- 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.

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