Firefighters Save Kittens From Apartment Fire

Firefighter Vincent Martinelli saved the lives for four young kittens while responding to a 2-alarm fire in the Bronx on Sunday. “It was smoky in the apartment, and I heard noise coming from the bay of the floorboards,” said the FDNY’s Martinelli. “It was the kittens, they were crying. I found one, and then the others. They are so young. I’m glad we were able to get them out of there.” Martinelli happily held the little rescues outside the scene on Sunday. “God Bless all the firefighters who risk their lives everyday for other people and animals too,” said one Facebook commenter. — Read it from the FDNY via Facebook
