A much happier story about firefighters battling a blaze in California who managed to save a kitten. Bless these heroes for everything they do!
Firefighters save lives every day and Thursday was no different.
However, one firefighter helping to protect homes where fires are raging in Northern California took time out to rescue a tiny life — a scared kitten who survived the Bear Fire.
While we were cleaning up an area we heard meowing and sure enough, this little kitten comes running up as friendly as can be: said Daniel Trevizo, a fire captain with the Los Angeles County Fire Department assigned to the North Complex.
Trevizo took a video of the yellow kitty as it quickly ran toward him on a fire-scarred and still smoking landscape, looking for safety.
He put the cat in the pocket of his yellow fire jacket while he and his crew watered down embers near Lake Oroville. They were close to the intersection of Simmons Road and Dove Court, making sure the fire didn’t rekindle and burn more homes.
We’re going ahead and keeping him safe and secure until we can drop him off to animal control: Trevizo said.
I’ll try to secure some food (at the base camp) for the little kitten here and see that it gets properly fed: he said. He’s a good little fire cat.
Trevizo said he saw in a group firefighters’ text that another fire captain had found a cat hidden in debris and rescued it, too.
God bless you for saving this precious baby 💙❤️🐾🐾😎🙏
