Firefighters save kitten from drain pipe

PORTLAND, Oregon—Firefighters rescued a kitten, but not from a tree. 

A homeowner heard a kitten crying for help through a basement wall Sunday evening, and called Portland Fire and Rescue crews.

They used shovels, a plumbing company's tiny camera, and other equipment to rescue the little feline.

After six hours, their hard work paid off.

They finally managed to extricate the kitten from a drain pipe.

Firefighters took it to the fire station for the night and named it "Champ."
