A total of 36 lives were saved after a bungalow in Dewsbury caught fire.
But far from a huge family living in a cramped home, the lives belonged to four adorable kittens.
The newborns were rescued from the house in Chickenley after a fire started on Monday.
A picture of the terrified tiny creatures, who appear just a few days old, was posted on Twitter by fire fighter Andy Noonan, who said “36 lives (4 kittens) saved from a house fire in Chickenley by Dewsbury, Ossett and Morley crews”.
Thankfully, no human occupants were injured in the fire either.
West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service confirmed the fire.
A spokesperson said: “We were called at 3pm on Monday, August 29 to reports of a fire at a bungalow in Chickenley.
“Three appliances attended. The fire was put out and crews saved four kittens in the property.
“No one else was hurt in the incident.”
