Kitten rescued from fire after Kharkiv rocket attack

STORY: Video released by the emergency services showed the kitten being pulled from under a twisted pile of metal chairs close to burning timbers.

Looking bedraggled but otherwise unharmed by its ordeal, the animal was given a wash down by one of the firefighters and then handed to volunteers.

Over 50 firefighters were involved in extinguishing the blaze affecting an area said to be around 23,680 square feet, according to the Ukrainian State Emergency Service.

Reuters was not able to independently verify the date it was shot.
