Two years ago, a tiny orange and white kitten strayed into the Belmont Fire House, malnourished and too small to even be vaccinated. After eating some fried chicken, the kitten grew stronger and hung around the station. That’s when firefighters nicknamed the cat Flame.
Since firefighters spend much of their time at the station, it’s their home away from home. Having a cat around helps make the station a happier place for everyone, especially Flame who gets a nice home in a fire station.
When the alarm goes off, Flame simply gets out of the way so the firefighters can drive their trucks away. When the firefighters return, Flame is there to greet them again. If you thought a cat makes your home cozier, then you can imagine how a cat makes firefighters feel.
