An adorable rescue was made in Nassau County on Monday.
The Fernandina Beach Fire Department responded to a call at The Lakeside at Amelia retirement and assisted living facility after two employees heard what sounded like meows coming from inside a storm drain.
Turns out, a tiny kitten had fallen inside! Engine 2 (C-Shift) was able to retrieve the kitten from the storm drain and get it back to safety. A Lakeside employee is now caring for the kitten.
“Sparky the Fire Dog” -- the official Instagram of the Fernandina Beach Fire Department -- sent News4JAX an updated photo of the kitten -- saying, “Update on the kitten from last night - she has had a vet visit and is doing well in her new home! Looking much better in this pic. Thank you for sharing!”
