A New York firefighter was responding to an apartment fire in the Bronx on Sunday when he suddenly heard a noise coming from inside the home.

FDNY firefighter Vincent Martinelli fought through the smoke to investigate – and what he found was startling.

Four young kittens turned out to be under the floorboards.

And from the looks of things, they were terrified by the two-alarm fire, said the firefighter, according to a post shared by the FDNY.

“They were crying,” said Martinelli.

“I found one, and then the others. They are so young. I’m glad we were able to get them out of there.”
