A kitten was rescued from a storm drain in Northwest Miami-Dade Sunday morning, officials said.

Miami Fire Rescue could hear the kitten squealing on NW 5th Street and 7th Avenue, according to public information officer Lt. Ignatius Carroll, Jr.

Using special equipment, officials were able to extract the male kitten 45 minutes later, Carroll said.

The kitten was taken to the fire station for a bath and some food.

"This is actually the fourth kitten that we’ve saved from a rescue drain," firefighter Carlo Soldevilla told NBC 6. "We’re here to help out whether it’s a person or an animal."

Anyone wishing to adopt the animal can visit Miami Fire Station #6 located on 701 NW 36th Street.
