At last a story from home!

SAN FRANCISCO—A pair of kittens may only have eight lives left after firefighters rescued them from a smoky San Francisco apartment building blaze early Friday and brought them back from the brink of death. San Francisco Fire Chief Art Kenney told KTVU that the one-alarm fire erupted in a rear kitchen in the three-story apartment building located at 951 Jackson St. at around 2:45 a.m. Arriving firefighters were able to quickly keep the flames from spreading to the other units and locate the residents who had evacuated the building. “Firefighters did a good job getting in there and stopping the spread of it,” Kenney said. “There was a lot of smoke and they came across a couple of kittens. They were unconscious. We were able to revive them.” (June 12, 2009) —Photo: KTVU
