When I was younger, I had dreams of becoming a firefighter. It’s certainly harder for a female to join the ranks in a male-dominated job, but I still admire the work these brave individuals do. It takes more than courage to run into burning buildings when everyone else is running out.

At the end of the day, any firefighter will tell you that every choice you make can be the difference between life or death. But if you can save a life, the risk is worth it!

Firefighters don’t just save people, though. Animals must also be saved!

In the clip below, you can see this for yourself! Members of the Indianapolis Fire Department responded to a house fire, and an incredible rescue was caught on camera.

In the body cam footage, you can see firefighters around the burning house. Then, one of them runs right into the flames. At first, you have no idea why.

Soon, the sounds of meowing become clearer. The firefighter was searching for a tiny kitten who couldn’t make it out of the fiery trap on his own.

Luckily, the little guy was fine after the ordeal. The heroic rescuer must be very proud that he saved the life of one adorable kitten!
