Ukrainian firefighters rescue kitten from burning building
Ukrainian firefighters known for rescuing people from buildings hit by shelling in more than six months of war turned their attention over the weekend to a furry victim – a grey-and-white kitten.
The rescuers, wearing full firefighting gear, battled raging flames and smoke to pull the kitten out from under a metal chair in the rubble of a large wooden hotel-restaurant complex hit by a rocket in Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, the country’s emergency services said on Sunday on Facebook.
Video showed the firefighters petting and cuddling the feline as they carried it to safety.
“We found a beauty,” one of the firefighters said as the kitten wiggled around in a colleague’s arms.
