Provo Fire & Rescue crews save ‘smoking’ kitten, ashy but unhurt, from brush fire

Provo Fire & Rescue saved a kitten from a fire, and shared these photos on Friday, June 4, 2021.

PROVO, Utah, June 5, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — When Provo Fire & Rescue workers from station 23 responded to a brush fire in an open area, they weren’t necessarily expecting to find a victim, let alone one so minuscule it could easily have gone unnoticed.

“They didn’t expect to find a kitten as close to the action as it was,” a Facebook post from the agency says.

“The kitty was immediately rinsed with water (because it was smoking) then assessed for burns and injuries.

“None found, but it might get a name (Smoke? Smokey? How about Lucky?) … and maybe a new home,” the post says.

The teeny tabby lucked out, and with lives to spare, if cat legends are true.

“Great save Firefighter Austin Svenson,” says the PF&R post, which is by congratulatory comments by followers.
