Firefighters rescue stray kitten that wouldn’t leave truck’s engine compartment

Firefighters were able to rescue a stray kitten from the engine compartment of a truck Sunday morning.

While firefighters were out testing fire hydrants they received a call about a kitten that was trapped inside the engine compartment of a vehicle and couldn’t, or wouldn’t, get out.

After unsuccessfully trying to coax the kitten out, a quick squirt from a garden hose convinced the cat to leave the truck.
