6-week-old kitten rescued from wall by Henderson firefighters

Firefighting crews have been known to have hectic shifts. But sometimes however busy events can get, they find time to help rescue a creature in distress — in this case Wednesday morning, a 6-week-old kitten stuck in a block wall.

Three members of Henderson Fire Department Station 81 — Steven Dean, Jad Cheetany and Eric Perry — were able to pluck the tabby from its predicament, according to the department’s Twitter account and a city of Henderson spokesperson.

Firefighters responded around 3:30 a.m. to a call from two women near College Drive and Boulder Highway who said the kitten was stuck in the wall and suffocating.

A camera was dropped into the wall to find what was making the noise. A hole was created in order to get the kitten out, and it was left with the women.
