NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – 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!”
Great job, FBFD! What do you think the kitten’s name should be?
