"One of our fire fighters pulled the cat out with a makeshift catchpole. Fire department did an awesome job!" Capt. Redman said.

The incident was first reported at 4 a.m. on Thursday. The kitty was rescued at 11.45 a.m.

"If the owner cannot be located at scene, the kitten will be taken to the El Cajon Animal Shelter to be examined for any injuries and later made available for adoption,” said Zech.
