BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Thanks to California City Fire Rescue, two kittens are now safe and sound.
Firefighters battled heavy smoke and flames coming from a mobile home at 171 Camp Fire Drive on Sunday evening.
About 75 percent of the structure suffered major damage, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
They didn't find any people in the residence, but the kittens were found near the fire suffering from burns and smoke inhalation.
Firefighters Ozzy Guerrero and Jonathan Mielkus were able to give the kittens medical attention and get them to safety.
On Monday, the kittens were transferred to an animal rescue group that will take care of them until they are old enough to be adopted.
If you'd like to adopt the kittens, call California City Animal Control at (760) 373-8606.
