ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – An alligator stops by a fire station, but this isn’t a lead into a dad joke.

According to Orange County Fire Rescue, this is exactly what happened over the weekend.

OCFR tweeted that the wayward navi-gator stopped by Station 85 in east Orange County on Saturday and was spotted under a truck.

Firefighters contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to safely remove the gator, according to OCFR. No word yet on if they’ll see it later.
