Winnipeg firefighters rescued two kittens while fighting a blaze in the 600 block of Pritchard Avenue on Wednesday night.
The animals were found inside a one and a half storey vacant home just before 8 p.m. Flames spread to the neighbouring home, which was also vacant.
Crews launched a defensive attack until it was safe enough to enter both structures and control the flames from inside.
The Winnipeg Humane Society emergency response team attended to take care of the animals.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. A damage estimate wasn’t immediately available.
