Kittens Saved From Burning Structure

Here's a follow-up on how Rutherford County Fire-Rescue recently added pet oxygen masks and learned animal CPR to better serve residents in this community. On Friday (5/17/2019) that knowledge was put into practice while fighting a structure fire at 1922 Bennett Street.

The Almaville Volunteer Fire Department and Rutherford County Fire and Rescue came across a dozen kittens trapped inside the building just off Leanna Road and near I-840.

Capt. Larry Sloan, "We need to save those rambunctious and frightened precious little fur babies."

All were safely removed, revived with oxygen masks and animal CPR.

The captain noted, "The kittens loudly proclaimed their gratitude".
