Firefighters rescue kitten from grease pipe in Concord

Kitten rescued from grease drain pipe

CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - A kitten was rescued from a 6-foot grease pipe in Concord Monday.

Firefighters apparently pulled the damp white and gray kitten from a pipe behind a restaurant.

The City of Concord Public Safety – Fire, Police, Communications, Emergency Management page posted about a video of the rescue on Facebook.

"Come here, don't be afraid," a man can be heard saying after firefighters manage to maneuver the small kitty from the pipe. "Thank you – God bless you."

"It's gonna be OK, don't be scared," the man says with what sounds like a smile.

"Our months are not complete without at least one animal rescue!" the public safety page wrote in their post. "Ladder 11 saved this cutie from a 6ft grease pipe behind a restaurant Saturday morning!"
