Rescued Kitten

#PetRescue Video of firefighters using a pet oxygen mask on a #kitten that was rescued from the sub-floor vent of a vacant 3,000 sq/ ft. home that burned today at the 227400 block of Yosemite near La Grange. After being treated by the firefighters, the kitten was reunited with it's mama and siblings. When firefighters arrived on scene, the home was fully-involved and the roof had already collapsed. Special thanks to Modesto Fire Department, Denair Fire Department, Hughson Fire and the Stanislaus County Fire Investigation Unit for their assistance today. The cause of the fire is being investigated and fortunately, no people (or animals) were injured. #ResourceSharing #rescue
