83-year-old Turkish man Ali Meşe lost everything he owned to a terrible fire.

He was seen hugging his kitten for comfort as they helplessly watched their house burn down.

Last week, Ali Meşe's home caught on fire when he tried to light a heating stove inside his house but something went wrong and led to an explosion in the living room. His single-story wooden house was burned down, leaving the family homeless.

Firefighters were able to rescue the man, his wife, his son as well as his kitten in the nick of time. Meşe was overcome by the loss of his home and all that he had, and he held his frightened kitten in his arms and wouldn't let go.
