Firefighters were conducting a training exercise for the Annadale Hose Company, when someone heard kitten cries from inside the building. They put everything aside and went to the rescue.

It was 9PM, when Lost Paws Animal Rescue, a local rescue group in Pittstown, New Jersey, received a message from a 911 dispatcher about a litter of kittens that needed help.

"The emergency service team of Clinton Township had a training. After they put out the fire they did a walk through and one of the fire fighters heard the kittens crying," Lyn Serino of Lost Paws Animal Rescue told Love Meow.

The kittens were about 2 weeks old when they found them.

"Firefighters turned the kittens over to our EMTs who went to work. Oxygen was administered and the kittens gathered into blankets," Clinton First Aid and Rescue Squad, Inc. said on Facebook.

They carefully checked on each kitten and gave them oxygen that was important to save their lives.

Serino of Lost Paws Animal Rescue went to pick up the kittens at the training center and found two bottle feeders, Kim Lawler and Maryann Doesburg, who took the kittens to get the veterinary care they desperately needed.

"We divided the litter between 2 feeders to make it easier. They seem to be thriving."

Everything is going to be all right little one!

Learning to explore in their foster home!

"It really was a joint effort to save them. The firefighters, ambulance crew, 911 dispatcher, myself and 3 other volunteers and the staff at the vet hospital all worked together to save these babies now known as the 'fire kittens'," Serino told Love Meow.

All seven kittens are doing well in their foster homes. They will be ready for adoption when they are big enough.
