This is the amazing moment fireman tackling a fire that devastated a green area in a Brazilian city come across a patch of vegetation untouched containing a tiny kitten.
The footage starts with the fireman going through the smoking devastation with a hose and attempting to extinguish small fires after the blaze had moved on.
At one point, they hear a meowing sound, and as they move the dried grass to one side, they spot the tiny kitten crouched down inside.
The fireman had been called by locals to the Jardim camburi neighbourhood in Vitoria Capital of Espirito Santo in Brazil in the mid afternoon on 5th October.
The blaze had taken place on wasteground between two streets that was piled with garbage and debris following construction work in the area.
It had then spread there to a grassed area where the kitten was later found.
As they tackled the blaze, the fireman identified as Sargent Elifas is filmed as he hears the sound of the kitten meowing, and then manages to find it. The kitten meowing can also be heard above the man talking, and he laughs as he lifts it to safety.
It was bedraggled, clearly terrified, and covered in certain dirt but otherwise unharmed as it was picked up in the huge gloved hand of the fireman.
The tiny kitten was given food and milk when they return back to the station, and fireman have now built a small box for the kitten who they are currently looking after.
Fireman urge people to take care and also warned against fly tipping, which was the cause of this place was then spread to the nearby vegetation.
